This Religious House» tbe only one remainîng for Englîsb ladies ont 
of several that formerly exîsted in Paris» was fonnded eitber in a. d. 
1634, or in a. d. 1635. Accordîng to an account comraunicated in the 
most obliging manner by tbe estimable ladies wbo at présent constitnte 
tbe Society» tbrougb tbeir Confessor tbe Rev. Mr. OToole, it appears 
tbat tbe foundation took place in tbe former of tbose years, and tbat 
tbe benevolent lady to wbom tbe bonour of it is due, was Dame 
Letitia Tredway, daugbter of Sir Walter Tredway,* of Bulkeley Park, 
Bockingbamsbire. Sbe was assisted in tbis pions purpose by tbe 
Rev. Tbomas Carr, Prociirator of tbe Englisb Collège of Donay. Tbe 
account in question goes on to say : " Tbjs lady bad been a religions 
sister of tbe ancient abbey of Notre Dame de Beaulieu, at Douay, and 
of tbe order of Canonesses regular of tbe order of St. Augnstine. Tbe 
fîrst bonse occupied by ber was in tbe Rue d*Enfer, wbere (îve ladies 
made tbeir profession, and wbere tbe establisbment was commenced 
under tbe protection of Cardinal Ricbelieu and tbe Ducbess d'Aiguil- 
lon. In 1635 a more commodious bouse was purcbased in tbe Fau- 
bourg St. Antoine, Rue de la Roquette : tbere, bowever, tbe com- 
munity did not remain more tban tbree years, tbe position of tbe bonse 
liaving been foand unbealtby ; and accordingly» in 1 638, anotber pur- 
cbase was made of tbe présent buildings in tbe Rue des Fossés St. 
Victor^ wbitber tbe community removed in 1639, and wbere they bave 
ever since remained." 

Tbis statement is ratber différent from wbat we iînd in tbe History of 
Paris, by Felibien and Lobineau, tom. ii. liv. xxix. p. 1456. llie 
account given by tbe leamed Bénédictines is as follows : " From tbe 
montb of Marcb of tbe year 1 633, the King, by bis letters patent, bad 
{lermitted tbe Religious Englisb ladies of tbe order of St. Augnstine, bom 
eitber in England. or elsewbere of an Englisb fatber or motber, to pur- 
cbase sites in Paris, in order to build tbereon a monastery : and tbese 
letters were verified bcfore tbe Parliament on tbe last day of Augost 

• Sir Walter Tredway, styled of Northamptonahire, when knighted 23 July 1603, 
was the son of Thomaa Tredvuiy, a Bencher of the Inner Temple, and grandson of 
Thomas or Henry, of Âmersham, Bucks. He had two daughters, Lettice, a non, 
mentioned in the text ; and Eliza, manied to William Stafford, of filatherwick, co. 
Northampton. The will of Sir Walter 1604, is registered in the Prérogative Conrt 
of Canterbory. His nncle Robert Tredway, of Easton, co. Northampton, married 
Margaret, daugbter of Guy Fisher, of Buck'den, and left issue. See Visit. Linc. 


1635. Thèse religious danghters began to acqnire hereditary property 
near the Porte St. Antoine, on the 22nd of December 1 635, the 5th of 
Febmary 1637, and the 9th of Jane 1653 ; and on the 25th of April 
1647, a donation was made to them of a pension of two thonsand livres. 
Marie Tresdunnay, their Abbess, obtained new letters patent in the 
month of March 1 655, by which the King allowed her and her religi- 
ons ladies to receive ladies, as well of their own nation, as of his own 
kingdom, and of ail other States in alliance with France, in order to 
live within this monastery, in observance of the reformed constitutions 
of the order of St. Angrnstine -, and granted them ail the same rights as 
were enjoyed by monasteries of this kingdom for ladies French by 
origin. In the registering made before the Parliament, on the 7th of 
September, it was said that the Abbess and the religions ladies conld 
not be more than ten professed religious ladies French by birth.'* 

Thèse accounts are no doubt the same in reality, and certainly refer 
to the same institution, there never having been any other English 
Convent of the same order in Paris. The name of the Abbess, spelt 
Tresdunnay (and also Tresdunay, in the original act registered by the 
Parliament), is a mistake of the French registrary for Tredway ; but 
the principal discrepancy is in the matter of dates, and in this, with ail 
due respect for the ladies to whose kindness we are indebted for the 
lirst account, we must take the liberty of considering the statement of 
Felibien and Lobinean to be the most entitled to authority. The ori« 
ginal act, above alluded to, is published in the fifth volume of their 
great work, or the third of the " Pièces et Preuves Justificatives,** p. 
141» and is precisely to the same effect. 

It is stated in the " Dictionnaire Historique de Paris," by Hurtant 
and Magny (a most useful work, but unfortnnately very scarce), vol. i. 
272, that this liouse was founded by the Bishop of Chalcedon, and that 
the Arcbbishop of Paris, M. de Gondi, only consented to its establish- 
ment on the main condition that no ladies but such as both whose 
parents were British should be received into it ; a restriction which was 
removed by the letters patent of 1655. The convent is stated by the 
same authority to be known by the title of Notre Dame de Sion. 

M. Jaillot, in his " Recherches sur Paris," mentions, that the house 
in the Rue des Fossés St. Victor, now occupied by the community, and 
in great part built by them, was formerly the property of Jean Antoine 
Baif, a poet well known in Paris during the 1 6th century. He adds, 
that the '' Academy of Music ** was established in it, which gave con- 
certs that were several times honoured by the présence of Charles IX. 
and Henry III. ; and that Baif used to assemble there the choice wits 
and leamed men of the day, from which circamstance the first idea. 
was taken of forming the leamed societies, which afterwards gave rise 
to the Académie Françoise. 


It ifl 8Ûd that Qoeen HeDriette Maria of £ii||^d was a benefactress 
to this hoQse, and that she always took great înterest in iti welfare : a 
drcomstance which, from the amiable character of that nnfortunate 
Prineess, we may readily believe. The choeen hoiue, however, of her 
Majesty, and that in which she long reaided and died, was the Convent 
of the Ladies of the Visitation of St. Mary, at Chaillot, so correctly de- 
scribed in after days by another lady, her snccessor on the throne of 
England, and her rival in amiability and every rirtne^ Qneen Maria of 
Este^ oonsort of the nnfortunate and mnch iDJnred James II. The fact 
was that ail the British religions establishments in France and other 
parts of Europe were aided and protected by the royal hoose of Stnart, 
who, thoogh their means were Tery limited^ had their hearts and pnrses 
always at the disposai of any of their snbjects whom the facti<m of the 
day had banished^ like themselves, from their native land. 

We are not in possession of any détails of interest relalâng to the 
convent of Notre Dame de Sion i^ to the fatal period of the Great 
Révolution. At that time, when the Almighty was pleased to pour ont 
the phials of his wrath on the devoted land oi France^ and to visit upon 
the third and fonrth générations oi children, not in themselves gniltless, 
the misdeeds and sins of their forefathers» the commnnity of this esta- 
blishment had to pass throngh an ordeal, which had nearly been for 
them one of iron and of blood. Much of their property was seized on ; 
the sacred earth of their chapel was dag up, and the bodies of the ladies 
reposing in it were taken away and thrown into the catacombs. 

At the dreadful time when to massacre the ministers of the altar was 
considered a work of trne patriotism, a commission of ruffians came to 
the convent to search for priests, of whom they had been informed the 
hoHse was foll. The ladies were ordered into the Refectory, and their 
Savage viûtors inspected narrowly the honse. After a search of some 
honrs* dnration, the leader of the gang to)d the Snperioress that she and 
the ladies were at liberty : no priest had been fonnd ; and he added, 
it was fortnnate for them. There is no donbt that if a single priest 
had been fonnd, thèse nnfortunate ladies would hâve been given np to 
the fnry of the mob. And yet there was a priest in the honse the 
whole of the time ! The Confessor was în his apartments, sitnated at 
the northem end of the bnildiDg, aware of what was going on, and 
waiting with calmness, and the courage which religion alone can afford, 
the fate which he believed to be inévitable. Only one door led to his 
rooms, and he had no means of escape, except by throwing himself oot 
ef his wiodow into a small back court which commnnicated with the 
garden. Hère, however, men had been posted, and ail ways of retreat 
eut off. Fortunately, or rather providentially, the door of one of the 
corridors, on being swung open, exoctly covered that whfch led to the 
Confessor 's rooms : it remaioed open ail the time the revolutionary 


ralBans were making their aearch, and they neyer knew what it con- 

Tke ladiet of thia community were among the rery fevr who were not 
ejected from their hoase daring the révolution : they were orerlooked, 
perhaps, and at a]l éventa they were not again molested. The mob 
never again penetrated within their sanctuary^ and sacceeding govem- 
menta hâve allowed them to keep that hold on their institution to which 
they were lawfully entitled. In this house, therefore, the Canonesses 
Regnlar of St« Auguatine hâve continned to lead their peacefol and holy 
lives, unaemi, unthought of by the gay and buay world^ but enjoying 
within themselves that peace which the world canaot give, and dis- 
penaiug to ail within their reach the fruits of their good lives. 

At the présent day a small number of young ladies are received in 
the convent for purposes of éducation, and this aflbrds at the same 
time agreeable employment to some of the younger sisters. while it also 
produces a small addition to the revenues of the house. A sound édu- 
cation is given to the juvénile pupils> and they receive many accomplish- 
menta which are acquired the nxNre solidly, because imparted in the 
quiet amiable manner that an EngHsh lady — and that lady a religif ua 
sister-^so preeminently and so invariably possesses. The number of 
ladies who hâve made their fuU profession is now about twenty in this 
houae» and that of the young pupils about thirty. 

The building is not remarkable for any architectural beauty, except 
the interior of the chapel, which is fitted up with much good taste* 
Hère a handsome oak screen and galleries seporate the portâon idlotted 
to the pupils and the officiating clergyman from the stalls of the sîsters : 
the pavement is covered with funereal inscriptions, and several good 
pictures adom the walls. The altar, by a curious anomaly, is, however, 
placed at the western extremity of the chapel. This édifice forms the 
southem wtng of the convent, and is separated only by a small garden 
fîmn the chapel of the Scotch CoUege, where the tombe of James IL, 
his Queen, his daughter, and his friends still remain. a. An ample 
cloiater and an extensive well planted garden «are on the north and east 
of the chapel. The main buildings of the convent form an irregular 
pile towards the Rue des Fossés St. Victor, and a small street leading 
into it. A plain unobtmsive gateway forms the entrance, and, from the 
Rue des Fossés St. Victor having been much lowered, leads by a steep 
flight of steps into a small eourt north of the chapel. The wicket is on 
the left hand side, and leads by a narrow passage to the parleur. 
Hère the visitor stops. The profane eye of the world is allowed to 
penetrate no ftirther 3 but behind the railing the British wanderer may 

* See Tol. VII. of thia work, p. 33. 


see the mild conntenances and hear the glad voices of his coantry* 
women^ and may learn with joy, that, though in a foreign land, the holy 
daoghters of Onr Lady of Sion préserve the sympathies that link them 
to their native isle. 

EsTo perpétua! 

The foUowing inscriptions occur either in the chapel» or on the onter 
walls of that édifice^ and other parts of the Convent.

{Caniifmed Jrom Vol. VU. p. 24/2.) 


This Cfaurch, dedicated to Saint Mary, consists of a chance!, 
nave, south aisle, and north chapel or aisle. The chancel is 
open to the nave, and the columns appear to hâve been eut 
away and a screen removed. It is separated from the north 
chapel by two rude pointed arches resting on circular colunins 
with fan capitals, and from the south aisle by two similar arches 
resting on circular columns with plain capitals. On the floor^ 
in front of the communion table, is a coffin-shaped slab with a 
cross. On the right of the communion table is a circular niche 
with a plain indented moulding. The east window is pointed^ 
and of three trefoiled lights, with a heading of four trefoileâ 
lights, and terminating in a quatrefoil. There are some vestiges 
of stained glass cousisting of three small figures, and some archi- 
tectural représentations. There are three Windows on the north 
and three on the south side, of two lights each, trefoiled. The 
north chapel has on the east a single broad lancet window, on 
the north a window of two lights trefoiled» and on the west a 
pointed window of two trefoiled lights with a quatrefoil heading. 
On the right of the east window is a plain pointed arched niche. 

The nave has two square Windows of two cinquefoiled lights 
each, with four trefoiled headings. There are some vestiges of 
stained glass. On the south side, in the clerestory, are two 
modem Windows. The séparation from the south aisle is by 
sHgfat modem pillars of wood. The royal arms are over the 
entrance to the chancel, and inscribed A. R. but without date. 

The east window of the south aisle is a broad lancet, and the 
south window is of two trefoiled lights; both Windows being 
nearly similar to those of the north chapel. There are also 
two square Windows corresponding to the north Windows of 
the nave. The west window is pointed, of two trefoiled lights 
with a quatrefoil heading. 
' The tower of this church is at the west end, the upper part of 


brick, square, and embattled. The south porch îs of brick, and 
modem. There is an avenue of yew trees leading to it. Thîs 
church is well placed on a hill above the village, and commands 
an extensive view over the Holt Forest towards the Hindhead. 

The rester commences in 1540. It is in good préservation. 
From 1700 to 1760 the entries of burials are made in accordance 
with the Act, and attested by the seals and autographs of the ma- 
gistrates. The names of Tylney, Chute, Jervoise, Pitt, Rudyerd, 
Cope, and Wyndham occur. The font is of stone, with a flat cir- 
cular arched moulding. It is strangely stowed away under the 
reading desk, of which it forms the support, and is, of course, in 
disuse. This church was enlarged in 1835 by the addition of a 
western end to the south chapel, constituting a south aisle, pre- 
vious to which the south side of the nave was closed by a wall 
similar to that on the north side. The Windows hâve been re- 
inserted in the new wall, but were lengthened to admit more 
light. There was an old porch in the same relative position as 
at présent. Previous to thèse altérations there was an oblique 
passage for communication between the nave and south aisie, or 
chapel, as there is now on the north side. There are six bells» 
on which are the following inscriptions :

parish of Bently. 
South Aisle. — Against the south wall is a black marble slab 
with the figures of a man and woman, in the dress of the times, 
kneeling at a desk. Above is a shield bearing the arms of the 
deceased, but the colours are much defaced. The bearings are,

Tbis ChurAf dedicafed to St. Nichokis, oonsists of a nave, 
dsanoel, and noith and soath aisles. There îs ako a vestry 
OD tbe Dordi side of the diancel, and a north cbapel, known 
M tbe Westcote aîsie, now separated fix>in die north aisle, and 
ooDverted into a school room. 

Tbe cbanoel is separated (rom the north and south aisles by 
two low ctrcaUu* arches, resting on circular oolumns, two of 
whidiy on the south side, bave omamented capitals. There is like- 
wise, on either side, a wooden screen of cinquefoil traceiy much 
disfigured by whitewasb. On the north side is a small pointed 
arched door oommnnicating with the vestry. There is some fi- 
gored tiling on the steps in front of the communion table. The 
principal devices are a large fleur-de-lys and a shield, bearing 
three fleurs-de-lys 2 and 1, and supported by two birds. On the 
right is a double pisdna under a square-headed arch. On the left 
an aumbrye. 

The east window is pointed, of three cinquefoil-headed lights, 
with four trefoiled headings. There are vestiges of stained glass. 

On the south side is a lancet window. That on the north side 
was closed up by the building of the vestry. 

The vestry is lighted by two Windows. That to the east is a 
very small cinquefoiled light; that to the north is of two cinque- 
foiied lights. 

The north chapel is separated from the north aisie by a low 
pointed arch. On the right of the east window is a small 
pointed arched niche, and on either side of tbis window are re- 
mains of piain stone brackets. The east window is of two tre- 
foiled lights with a cinquefoil heading. The north aisle is lighted 
by a small lancet window partly closed (another appears on the 
outside, but is closed up) and two modem square Windows. 

The nave is separated from the north and south aisles by four 
pointed arches resting on low circular columns with omamented 
capital». There are four small circular-headed arches, or 
Windows unglazed, opening to the north and south aisles in the 
triforium. The séparation from the chancel is by a low pointed 
arch, over which are the royal arms, of date 1755, and above are 
three Windows^ viz, an oblong modem light between two lancets. 


One of the cross beams of the roofing of the nave is inscribed, 
** Churchwardens, William Locke, Thomas Searle, 1637," the 
date of the repairs. 

The south aisle has a west window oF two cinquefoiled lights 
with a quatrefoil heading partly closed. On the south side are 
three Windows of two cinquefoiled lights each, and two square 
modem Windows. The south chapel is separated from this aisle 
by a low pointed arch, and divided by an oak screen of cinque- 
foil tracery lamentably whitewashed. On the right of the east 
window is a stoup. This window is pointed, and of three cinque- 
foiled lights, with a heading of two trefoiled lights and a quatre- 
feil, There are some remains of stained glass. On the south 
side, eastward, is a window of two trefoiled lights, and immedi- 
ately undemeath is a low pointed arched canopy over a plain 
raised monumental slab ; the whole, as usual, whitewashed. On 
the same side, westward of the door, is a window of one cinque- 
foiled light. 

ExTERioR. — The tower is at the west end, square, with a 
spire of shingles. It has two Windows to the west of two lights, 
each cinquefoiled, and the same to the east. The nave and aisles 
are covered by one extensive roofing of tiles ; the lower part 
being of rough slates. 

The south door to the aisle is a plain pointed arch with a 
brick porch, erected, by date, in 1786. 

There is a small door to the south chapel. On the north 
side is that part of the north chapel, or Westcote aisle, which 
bas been separated from the church, and is now used as a school 
room, being boarded over several feet above the flooring, with 
an entrance door barbarously contrived through the east window, 
which is similar to that of the north chapel. There is a piscina 
to the right of this window. The north side Ls lighted by a 
window of three cinquefoiled lights with a heading of three 
cinquefoiled lights, but mutilated, and of rather doubtful cha- 
racter. Near this window is a cross-legged stone effigy in chain 
mail under a low pointed arch, the hands raised in prayer, the 
feet resting on a lion, and with angels supporting the head; on 
the left arm is his shield, bearing in chief three covered cups. On 
the ledge of the slab is inscribed, in Lombardic characters, 
** Richard de Westcote > gist ici Deu de sa aime eit merci amen."

This monument is railed ofiP, to protect il from the assaults of 
the school children, and, in order to examine it, it is necessarj 
to climb over the rails and get down below the flooring amongst 
the rubbish. The stone coffin on whîch it rests was, until lately, 
sufficiently opèn to admit the hand, and the skull could be feit. 
Mr. Lockhart caused the opening to be closed. There is a low 
pointed doorway, now closed, on the west side. 

The Registers are in good préservation. The baptisms begin 
1653; the marriages 1664; and the burials 1663. 

Chancel. — Within the communion rails is a slab with an 
obliterated inscription. On the floor without is a slab with a 
brass inscribed : 

" Hère lyeth the body of Mr. Richard Cheyney, of tbis 
parish, who departed this life the twenty-first day of May, and 
buried the twenty-fourth of y« same month, in the year of our 
Lord 1701, in the sixty-sixth year of hîs âge. He left one hun- 
dred pounds to bee laid out for ye benefit of y« poor of this 
parish for ever."^ 

Also, ** Hère lyeth the body of Elizabeth Cheyney, who 
departed this life the 2^ day of May, anno Domini 1712, aetatis 
suœ 81. 

"Also the body of Samuel Parker, who died the 5*^ of 
August 1742, aged 48." 

On a brass affixed to a slab : 

" Hère resteth yc body of Susanna, the daughter of the 
Right Hon^^« William Lord Maynard,^^ and wife of Nicuolas 

of Westcotet in the 37th of Edward the Third, from which it appean that Richard 
de Westcote was his son and heir, and then aged 35. This was doubtless the fiame 
whose effigy stiU exista, and, by a subséquent deed relating to an action for debt| 
he appears to hâve been living in the 47th of Edward the Third. There was also a 
John, son of John de Westcote, who had lands at Alton, Dipnall, and Crondall in 
the lOth of Edward the Third, leaving four sisters his coheirs. Robert de la Bere 
and Nichola his wife held the manor of Westcote in the Gth of the same monarch, 
when Thomas their son was fonnd heir, and aged 30. 

^ This money was left by him in trust to the minister and to his nephew, John 
Cheyney, to be invested in laod, the interest to be paid to the poor on the Ist of 
Noyember in each year. He leaves directions respecting his monument. This 
charity is stated to be lest. 

* This daughter of the first Lord Maynard, by his second wife, is erroneously 
represented, in ail the Peerages, as dying unmarried. Nicholas Bowell of Berry 
Court, co. Hants, Esq. had a grant of Arms from Bysshe Clarenceuz, 13 Dec.

Against the north wall, painted on board : 

"June SOth, 1787. Underneath this stone, in a stean'd 
double gr^ve, are deposited the remains of John and Mary 
Trimmer, late of this place. Their survivors humbly request 
their mouldering ashes may rest undisturbed." 

Also on a similar board against the south wall : 

'* Underneath and near this seat, in three separate stean'd 
graves, are deposited the remains of three children of John and 
Sabah Trimmer. Their surviving parent humbly requests 
their mouldering ashes may rest undisturbed." 

It is rather remarkable for so large a church that thèse should 
be the only mural monuments. 

The only benefaction recorded is against the north wall, viz. 
a legacy of two pounds a year, given by the will of the late Rev. 
Samuel Woodford to poor widows of the parish of Binsted.^ 

North Chafel. — On a slab is a loose brass inscribed :

rated, are recorded the burials of Ann Hunt, wife of Nicholas 
HuNT, who died Deœmber 1710, aged 39 years. Also Nicho- 
las, son of the aforesaid Nicholas; also, Nicholas Hunt, who 
died February 1777, aged 82 years; and James Hunt, whose

in low relief. It is at the north-west end of the chancel.

Henry m. and the Edwards» it is usnally called Aylsie or AlsieHolt, and the déri-

name of Alsi. On referring to Domesday, Alai, and Alsi the son of Brixi, oocor

Burningham, and planted in Âpril 1754 by direction of Joseph 
Loveday, Curate. 



This Church, dedicated to AU Saints, consists of a nave and 
chancel without séparation. The whole is modem and of 
brick, havîng been built in 1804. 

It is lighted by four large oval Windows, two on the north 
and two on the south side, and bas no pretensions to architec- 
tural character. 

There is an embattled tower at the west end. The old church 
is stated to hâve been built of flint and rubble, with small lan- 
cet Windows and a shingled spire.

St. John Mildmay, Bart. and Jane his wife, Captain in the 
Royal Navy, who died September Ist, 1823, in the 27th year 
of his âge." 

On the same side is also anoval slab of white marble, inscribed, 

" Sacred to the memory of Sir Henry Paulet St. John, 
Bart. of Dogmersfield Park, many years one of the Représen-

On the floor, just without the communion rails, is a blue 
slnb with a shield, the bearings on which are obliterated, and this 
inscription : 

*' Hère lyeth the body of Mrs. Hester Goodyer, relict of

In the churchyard is a monument to Franges Sarau Dyson, 
eldest surviving daughter of Jeremiah Dyson, Clerk of the 
House of Gommons, who died June 21, 1840, aged 46; and 
anotlier to John Norris Thompson, Esq. of Hatchwood, near 
Odiham, and of Legakelly in the county of Cavan, who died 
March 11, 1830, aged 69. 

The Register commences in 1695, and is stated to be in toler- 
able préservation. 

The bells are three in number, and without inscription. 


This Church, of which there is no record or tradition of a 
dedication, consists of a chancel, nave, and north transept. It 
is entirely new, having been recently rebuilt by Lord Calthorpe, 
from a plan and élévation by H. Roberts, Esq. The old church 
coDsisted of one aisle, with a small wooden belfry at the west end. 


It was built of ihe iron-stone concrète of the country, and had a 
tîled roolïng. The north side was lighted by tbree plain circular 
arched Windows, one being of very small dimensions. The 
south side had a lancet window, a square-beaded window of two 
trefoil-headed lights, a modem square window, a circular arched 
ditto, and two modem oval lights. The east window was mo- 
dem, wïth a circular arch. The west end had a plain Norman 
doorway, and a lancet window. On the south side was a porch 
with two small lights, and a doorway of Norman architecture. 
Thèse doorways hâve been preserved, but are now so combined 
with the modem work that the di&rence is hardly distinguishable. 
The modem church is in the Norman style, and the prototype 
of the tower and steeple is the northern tower of the cathedral 
at Bayeux. 

The Regisler commences in 1638, on the 15th day of Novem- 
ber : " upon which day," as is stated in the tide-page, " Mr. 
Jones, Rector of the said parisli, was buried ; and Richard 
Thomson, Master of Arts, sometime Fellow of Corpus Chrisù

This Church, dedicated to St. Mary, is very small, and con- 
sists of a chancel, nave, north aisle, and north chapel. 

The dimensions of the chancel are extremely confined, and 
the whole is in the worst style. The east window is a modem 
oval light, and on the south side is a window of three oval lights 
divided by stone mullions, 1;^e only one of any ancient character. 

The nave, or middle aisle, is separated from the north aisle 
by five circular arches on squared columns of modem date. The 
south side has four oval Windows. It is separated from the 
chancel by a plain screen of three arches. The royal arms, of 
date 1722, are over the screen. 

The north chapel is separated from the chancel by a low 
pointed arch resting on rude octangular half-columns. The 
east window is of three lights, the framework of wood. On the 
right is a small and plain niche ; this and the arch above men- 
tioned are the only vestiges of the old church. It is open to the 
north aisle, which is lighted by five oval Windows. The font 
is a plain bowl supported by a rude circular column. 

The Register commences in 1559, and it is stated to be in 
good préservation.

who married Pénélope, danghter of Hon. Lieat.-Gen. Mordannt, and nièce of

Galen Cope, rector of Evenley. Sir Richard married Anne, danghter of Thomaa 
Wyndham, Eiq. of Yateley, Hanta. In Bramahill hooae are aevend portraita of 
the Wyndham fomily. On the deceaae of Sir Richard Cope, without iaaoe, in 1806, 
the title derolred upon hia nephew Sir Densil, eldeat son of William Cope, Eaq. of 
Bridgen Place, Kent, by Anne, danghter of Benjamin Greenwood, Eaq. of St. 
Mary'a Cray. Sir Denail died withont iaane in 1812, and waa inoceeded by 
hia brother John the présent Baronet. The magnifioent manaion of Brams- 
hill waa bnilt by Edward Lord Zonche aa a reaidence, it ia said, for Prince 
Henry, son of Jamea the First. The pipes bear the date of 1612, with the 
initiala E. Z., in which year the Prince died, and the mansion continned to be 
occnpied by Lord Zonche, who died there, and waa bnried in Everaley chnrch, 
in 1635. The architect waa, in ail probabiUty, Thorpe, who bnilt HoUand 
Honae, in 1607. It waa begnn subséquent to the year 1600, as Lord 
Zonche was, at that time, residing at Guemsey as GoYemor, and no men- 
tion of Bramahill appears in a large collection of letters then written by him to 
Tarions persons, and now in the possession of Sir Thomas PhilHpps, Bart- The 
architect placed an effigy over the north front, which is supposed to be eîther 
James the First or Lord Zonche, but on ezamination, it is dearly that of the 
latter, as it bears a atrong resemblance to his portrait, by Mytens, in the gallery 
at Hampton Court. The small portrait in the gallery at Bramahill, shown as that 
of Lord Zouche, is the portrait of Lord ChanceUor Ellesmere. The grate, in 
what is called the chapel-room, has the royal arma with the date 1604, and initiala 
I. R. The screen in the hall is of stone, but painted. It bas ninety-two amall 
shields, three of which are surmounted by coronets. Thèse shielda were perhapa 
emblasoned with the quarterings of the family, and the three principal ahields may 
bave been intended to designate the Baronies of Zouche, St. Maur, and Cantalnpe.

df May a^. SI Edw. III. the Jury state that he was dead, but 
they know not on what day he died ; that his son Ralph Bul- 
mer was his heir, and was sixteen years old on the feast of A\\ 
SouIs last past ; and that from the time of his death one Ralph 
de Bulmer has been in possession of his lands, and received 
the rents and profits thereof, but by what right they know 
not.^ Another inquisition was taken on the 16th of the same 
month, after the death of Alice his wife, wherein the Jury find 
that she survived her husband, and died on Wednesday after 
the feast of Trinity in ao. 30 ; and that Ralph, son of the said 
Ralph and Alice, is her heir, and was fifteen years old and up- 
wards at the time of her death. 

P. 593, 1. 38. The reason hère assigned by Dugdale for omit- 
tîng further notice of this &mily seems to be invalidated by the 
resolution of the House of Lords in 1694, viz. '< If a person sum- 
moned to Parliament by writ and sitting die," &c. » and there- 
fore it is now thought proper to continue the line as far as it can 
be traced. 

Margaret the widow survived until a^. 3 Rie. II. when her 
son Ralph was found her heir, and then thirteen years of âge : ^ 
he made proof of his âge in 9 Rie. II. and died in 7 Hen. I V.S 
being then styled Chevalier. By an inquisition taken at North- 
arapton upon his death, it appears that he held amongst other 
things, jointly with Agnes his wife, then surviving, the third pré- 
sentation to the church of Heyford in that county when it shall 
bappen after the présentation of Robert Lumley, h who last pre- 
sented, with remainder to George Bulmer, son of the said Ralph

ness, and afterwards in a^. 3 Hen. V. was the wife of Sir Edmund 
de Hastings. 

This last Ralph Bulmer survived his father only four years» 
and dying in 1 1 Hen. IV. left Ralph his son and heir, then an 
infant only three years of âge, who married a daughter of the 
Baron of Hilton, and had issue Sir William his son and heir, 
who by Ëlizabeth his wife, daughter of Robert Eure (youngest 
son of Sir Ralph Eure by his second wife Katharine de Âton), 
was father of Sir Ralph Bulmer and other children. ^ 

This last-mentioned Sir Ralph married Jane, daughter of Sir 
William Bowes, and dying on the eve of St. John the Baptist 
in the first year of King Henry VH. left William his son and 
heir, then twenty-one years old and upwards. ^

yers, of Hornby, K.G. and had issue three sons, John, Ralph,

of George Salvin, of Newbiggin, Esq. Ralph, the second son, 
was a Knight, and married Anne, daughter of Roger Aske. 
William, the third son, was also a Knight, and ancestor of the 
Bulmers of Elmedon, in Durham. ^

at the death of his father, a^. 23 Hen. VHI.o He married to his 
first wife Anne, the daughter of Sir Ralph Pigott, Knt. and to 
his second wife, Margaret, daughter of Henry StaiFord : by her 
he had issue two sons and two daughters, but two of thèse, 
Francis and Mary^ appear to hâve been boni before marriage ; 
John, bom after marriage, was seated at Pinchinthorpe, in the 
county of York, in 1584, and Anne, his legitimate sister, was 

married to St. Paul of Lincolnshire. Sir John's issue 

by his first wife was Sir Ralph, his son and heir, William his

gious insurrection in the north parts of England» which its ring- 
leoders denominated the '* Pilgritnage of GracCf" and he was 
attainted with the rest of the conspirators. 

His eldest son Sir Ralph was restored in the following reign, 
and baving married Anne, the daughter and sole heir of Sir 
Thomas Tempest of Brough, died in 4 and 5 Philip and Mary, 
leaving eight daughters, and they were his coheirs; 1. Joan, 
2. Frances, 3. Milicent, 4. Dorothy, 5, Bridget, 6. Barbara, 
7. Mary, and 8. Anne. Joan, the eldest, married to Francis 
Cholmeley, of Roxby, Esq. eldest son of Sir Richard Cholme-

of Marmaduke Constable, Esq. of Cli£Pe, in 1584, and had issue, 
Milicent, the third, married to Thomas Grey, Esq. of Barton, 
Of the other five nothing more is at présent known. The Ba-» 
rony fell into abeyance amongst thèse coheirs, and so continues, 
it being certain that there is issue from more than one of then) 
remaining to this day.

Kerdeston. — Vol. II. p. 112. 

It appears clearly by Inquisition 29 Hen. VI. no. 31, that 
William de Kerdeston, the last Baron, had no other lawful issue 
except two daughters, Maud and Margaret ; and that the maie 
succession for three générations of William, Léonard, and Thomas 
had been a usurpation. — The Barony therefore fell into abey* 
ance between the said Maud and Margaret, who both left issue. 

Maud was wife to Sir John Burghersh, Knt. who died a^. 24 
Edw. lll.s by whom she had Sir John, who was 17 years old at 
his grandfather Kerdeston's death in a^. 35 Edw. IIL^ He

county of Gloucaster, and died a^. 15 Rie. II. leaving issue by 
her only two daughters his coheirs, named Margaret and Moud. 

Margaret married first to Sir John Grenville, Knt. who died 
without issue ; and secondly to Sir John Arundel, Knt. and her 
posterity continues to this day. The last maie of the elder 
branch was, according to the best information I at présent possess, 
Richard Arundel Bealing (or Bealing Anindel), Esq. who left 
two daughters his coheirs, one of whom^ Frances, married to 
John GifiPord^ of Borestal, co. Leicester, and died in 1752, and 
the other to Lord Arundel of Wardour, whose heir and repré- 
sentative is the présent Lord (a^ )807).u 

Maud, the second daughter and coheir of Sir John Burghersh, 
married to Thomas Chaucer, Esq. and surviving her husband 
died in 1486, and was buried with him at Ewelme, co. Oxon. 
Their daughter and sole heir Alicia was thrice married, first to 
Sir John Philips, Knt. ; secondly to Thomas Earl of Salisbury, 
who died a®. 7 Hen. VI.^ but had no issue by either of them; 
and thirdly to William Delapole then Earl and afterwards Duke 
of Suffolk, under which title of Delâpole her immédiate issue 
will be found : but (as I hâve said there) I believe it to be at 
présent extinct; and in that case the représentation of Maud the 
elder coheir of this Barony of Kerdeston will rest in the heir. 

* The two daughters and coheirs of lUdiard Bealing (or Bellinga) Anindel, who 
died in 1795, were Fronces and Mary, 

France» the eldêêi was wife of Sir John Gifford, of Bnrstall, co. Leicesteri Bart. 
and died 28 Febmary 1751 -S without issue. Mary, the second and youngest, bom 
1716, married in 1739 Henry seventh Lord Arundel of Wardour, and died in 1769* 
Her representatiTes are stated in a note which will be found in yoI. YI. p. 398, to 
which I refer for the purpose of correcting an error in the account there printed, 
which occurred from having relied on printed anthorities, and particularly one 
qiioted from Gilbert's History of Comwall, to the effect that Sir John Arundel, 
who died in 1701, left two daughters, and coheirs, Tiz. " Anne, who died unmar- 
ried 85 August 1718, and was buried at St. Columb, and F^rances, who married 
8lr Richard Bealing, knt. who died in 1716.'* It is true that Fronces, the elâest, 
bom 1650, married Sir Richard Bealing (or Bellings) in 1671» and died 6 De- 
cember 1713» learing Richard Bealing Arundel aboyé mentioned ; but the second 
dan^ter and coheir was Elizabeih, married in 1684 to Sir Henry Bedingfeld, of 
Oxborgfa, co. Norfolk, now represented by Sir Henry Paston Bedingfeld, Bart. 

In the note therefore referred to, it should bave been stated that Elisabeth 
Lady Bedingfeld was a daughter and coheir of Sir John Arundel, instead of Rich- 
ard Bf^"g Amndel : and that Frances Lady Gifford was the other coheir with 
l^Af Arundel of Wardour of the said Richard Bealing Arundel, C. G. Y. 

' £se« 7 Hen. VI. no. 57* 


if any such there be, of the above-named Frances Gifibrd, who 
died in 1752, and the présent Lord Arundel of Wardour. 

I come now to speak of Margaret the second daughter and 
ooheir of William Lord Kerdeston. She married Sir William 
Tendring, knt. and had two sons^ John Tendring and Sir Wil- 
liam. John had only two daughters who died issueless^ and Sir 
William left an only daughter and heir named Âlicia, who was 
wife of Sir John Howard, Knt« and grandmother of John 
Howard the first Duke of Norfolk of that sumame ; and thus 
this moiety of the Barony of Kerdeston vests in the présent 
beirs gênerai of that noble house, Lord Stourton and Lord Petre. 

The Barony of Kerdeston is therefore, according to this state- 
ment, in abeyance between 1. The heir, if any such there be, 
which I very much doubt, of Frances GiiFord who died in 
1752; 7 2. Lord Arundel of Wardour ; 3. Lord Stourton; and 
4. Lord Petre.

first De la Pôle Earl of SufFolk, and son and heir of Sir Edmund

[L] De Gorram, of la Tanniére in Maine. 

Some of this family must hâve foUowed the Conqueror into 
England ; for, at the tîme of the Domesday survey, " W[illiam] 
son of GoRH^M " was a tenant of land in Cippenhall, nearFres- 
ingfield, Sufiblk, held of Hervey of Bourdeaux.^ 

The Breton family, from whîch the English settlers were de- 
rived, may now be tracéd oiie step higher than the pedigree 
hitherto gîven in the Coilectanea ; for it appears that 

Ralph de Gorram, in the year 1 100, gave ^ to tlie Abbey of 
Marmoutier, in the suburbs of Tours, the Church of Brecé, 
about four miles from Gorram in Maine. He occurs as a witness, 
about 1112, to a grant^ of land between Brittany and the Av- 
ranchin to Vitalis Abbot of Savîgny. He witnessed, about 1120,

(or Ralph) de Gorram, Le Paigê cites a MS. which he calls Mémoire» de ta Choux. 
The Countess de la Chaux was Frances Olive Doinel, daughter of Honorée Thé. 
rese Olive des Vaux, heiress of Livaré, the ancient possession of the De Gor- 
rams, which property, having passed through other familles, came to the des Vanxs 
in 1429 ; she.married, in 1742, M. René Charles Pierre de Montréal, Count de la 
Chaux, Lord of Vaujois, Boishamelin, Nuillé, &c. This lady drew up Memoirs for 
NuiUé-le-Vendin, and sixty other parishes; from which Le Paigé (see his Intro- 
duction, p. viii.) took the greater part of his généalogies of the nohility oftheLower 
Maine. — The grant of Brecé (whiuh now rests on the authority of thèse Afemoire» 
de La Ckauxj douhtless existed in the'Cartulary of Marmoutier ; but that Regis- 
ter (which is frequently quoted by Ménage, Hist. de Sablé) is said not to be found, 
either in the Public Library, or in the Archiyes, at Tours. The grant has not been 
found in the M S. Historiés of Marmoutier by Dom Martine (2 vols, folio) and by 
Père Anselme (3 vols, folio) , in the Public Library of Tours, though thèse workt 
contain a great number of the Abbey Charters.

and by Hamelin and Juhel his sons ; it is dated from the Castle of Emée. (Savigny

sister (wifeof Ralph de Gorram), and William de Gorram her son. (Savigny Cartnl.

« There is some ambignity as to the descent of this lady. She is distinctly called 
(in Savigny Cartulary, ff. 103, 170) the ** sister " of Juhel II. de Mayenne, 
though Ménage, in his acoount of that family (Hist de Sablé) makes no mention 
of sttch a relationship. On the other hand, it appears (see Savigny Cartulary, f. 
110,) that she was the ** matertera" of Geoifrey IV. de Mayenne ; henoe, if that 
word be taken in its proper acceptation, she must hâve been Geoffrey's " maternai 
aunt," and consequently the sister of Clémence wife of Juhel II. de Mayenne, and 
therefore the daughter of William de Bellesme, called Talvas, Count of Alençon : 
but it is stated by the antient chroniclers (see William de Jumiéges, Book VIII. 
chapter 35, page 311 in Du Chesne's Scrip. Norm.) and by the best modem writers 
(Odolant-Desnos, Mem. Hist sur Alençon et ses seigneurs, vol. I. pp. 873, 274, 
notes, Gilles de Bry, Hist. des Comtes du Perche, liv. II. chap. 17, pp. 111, 1112, 
edit. 1630), that William de BeUesme had only two daughters, Clémence, married 
to Juhel II. de Mayenne, and Ala, married to William Warren, 3rd Earl of Surrey. 
Du Cange observes, however, that the word ** matertera" b sometimes used in 
the less strict sensé for the *' father's sister ; *' this sensé bas been adopted in the 
text, as reconciling apparently contradictory testimonies.

Savigny, of the wood of Petersbridge, bounded by the rivulets Urda and Cham- 
beron, and by the road from La Dorée up the mountain to the stone fixed on the 
summit (marking the confines of Normandy) : this grant was made for the soûl of 
his wife Adeline, with consent of his sons Hamelin and Juhel, 4 kal. Apr. 1114.

f. 115.) to hâve married MatUda; — a discrepançy which led to 
the conjecture (Coll. Top. V. p. 186.) that they were différent 
persons; it is now, however, ascertained that they were iden- 
tical : consequently, two générations must be expunged from the 
pedigree as given in Coll. Top. V. p. 198 ; as wili be manifest by 
comparing that supposed descent with the corrected table in 
p. 96 of the présent Article. 

GiLEs DE GoRRAM. It seems more than doubtful whether 
Giles de Gorram be the person intended by ** Gilo de Gorania'* 
who crossed himself in 1 162. (See Coll. Top. V. p. 186.) 

Sir Ralph de Gorram, grandson of Giles. Another seal of 
Sir Ralph, apparently of earlier date, and more rudely engraved, 
than that which bas already been described, (Coll. Top. V. p. 
188.) bas been recently found, attached to a Mount St. Michael 
Charter, of which a duplicate (K.) without seal at St Lo bas 
been printed in the volume and page just cited. Thîs seal is 
round, rather more than two inches in diameter, and exhibits a 
knight mounted, bearing a curved shield, on the profile of which 
appears a lion rampant (the charge being,doubtIess,3 lions): legend, 


About the year 1210 he confirmed the grants of his ancestors to 
the Abbey of Mount St Michael (1. 2.) ; and, by the same 
charter, he bound himself to fumish the Priory of Villarenton^ 

^ The " Abbatiola de VUIarenion,^' afterwards called VAhhayeite, and in mo- 
dem times (as ipelt in Casnni's Map), La Bayette, was a dependency of Mount 
St. Michael ; but it ia altogether unnoticed among the Cells of that Abbey in Gai- 
lia Christiana (toL xi. p. 511). It was situated on the Futaye, in the crossing of 
the roada from Landivi to La Dorée, and from St. Mars to Feugerolles. In or 
before Century X, property at Vitta-Arunton was given to the Monks of Mount 
st. Michael, but was alienated during some " irruption of the Normans." About 
1003, Robert being then King of France, Abbot Maynard II. obtained a regrant 
of this property, from (the descendant of the former donor,) '< Ive, son of Fuie and 
Rohais, nephewof SiginfredBishop*' [ofSeez? vide Dugd. Mon. Ang. ii. 991» 
and GaU. Christ xi. 68] , an ancestor of the celebrated house of Bellesme. This 
eurioua charter, dated " Castrum Fratemense,*' still exists in the tower of St. Lo. 
At what time the ** Abhatiola " was built, is unknown. It was, probably, from 
this CeU, that '* John, a Monk of the Priory tuper Fuëtaiam, " dated his list of 
Crusaders from Maine in 1162 (Ménage, Hist. de Sablé, p. 180) ; though 
Ménage conjectures that a Religions House at St. Mars, at some distance from 
that riTulet, was intended (p. 182, margin,) the Abbatioia being apparently un- 
known to him. In the year 1190 (Savigny Cartul. at St. Lo, f. 127 b.) Jnhel III.

Sir Robert de Gorram. In addition to his seal already 
described (Coll. Top. V. p. 188. VI. 285.) two others hâve been 
recently discovered which présent some curious variations, both 
in the name, and the device. 

The first of thèse seals is attached to a charter (K. 2*.) dated 
at the beginning of March 1226-7 ; being an exchange of a 
tenement in Livaré with Ralph Abbot of St. Michael's Mount. 
It is singular that, in this charter, and in the accompanying 
seal, he assumes the name of Robin instead of Robert; — for it 
is certain that there was no intermediaie possessor of la Tan- 
niére between Sir Ralph and Sir Robert. The seal is imper- 
fectly round, rather more than 1} inches in diameter, and ex- 
hibits a shield charged with two lions passant in pale ; legend, 


The second seal of Sir Robert, which has been already de- 
scribed (Coll. Top. V. p. 188, and VI. p. 285), exhibîts three 
lions rampant ; as in the seal of his brother Ralph, who first 
assumed the family arms. Several impressions of this seal exist, 

Lord of Mayenne, " bein; désirons to proceed in the way of the Lord to Jeraie- 
lem,*' went previonslj to Monnt St. Michael, in the Chapter-house of which Ab- 
bey be " receired the prayen of the Chnrch : *' the Monks took this opportnnity 
of '' orging him to confess the truth respecting his daim to Haia ViliareÊtom" 
CVJAbayêité) ; he therefore caosed an inquisition to be made, and renonnced the 
property, in faTonr of the Abbey, by a curions charter which still exists among the 
archiyes of St. Lo, and of which there is a copy in M. L'Echandé D* Anisy's bean- 
tifîil transcript of Charters from Normandy and Brittany (toI. ii. p. 310, n. 105), 
among the papers of the late Record Commission, at présent under the keeping of 
the Lords of the Treasury.— Sin Ralph de Gorram made a grant (I. S.) to thii 
little Priory, as mentioned in the tezt, about 1210 ; and his brother, Sir Robert 
DE Gorram, in 1335, fonnded a mass hère (K.5.) forhimself sndhis ancestors. The 
following Priors of the Abbatiola of Viliarenion occur, and are probably the only 
names which can be redeemed from oblivion : — Ralph, circa ISIO (see De Gorram 
Charters, I. and I. S.) :— André de Lamps, 1534 :— Le Sienr Colin, 1660 :— Dom 
Michael Bry, 1680 and 1694 ; in the latter year he appealed against the daim of 
the Duke of Mazarin to certain feudal payments, pleading exemption on the ground 
that his Cell had been endowed by Sir Robert de Gorram on the sole condition 
of the prayers of the Chnrch. (Printed Case, formerly in the Tower of St. Lo, now 
in Brit. Mas. Addit. MSS. n. .) It is said that there still existe at La BayttU 

a small chapel, to which procession is made from La Dorée in Rogadon Week. 


vi2. to a deed (K. 5.) dated 1235, of which there are triplicate 
originals, — to a charter (L.) dated in the year just named, of 
which there are also triplicate originals^ — and to a grant (L. 2.) 
dated in 1236. 

The third seal of Sir Robert was evidently a Secreium. It 
occurs in 1236, attached to a pétition (L. 3.) that the Bishop of 
Mans would annex his seal to the deed (L. 2.) above-mentioned. 
It is round, one inch in diameter, and exhibits (without a shield) 
a lion passant to the sinister side ; legend, 

lïi S S ROB De COKSN, 

the first S being reversed. 

We hâve thus the strange anomaly of two variations in tlie 
name, and three changes in the armoriai device, of the same 
person. — ^The foUowing are the charters to which référence bas 
just been made:

Thomas de Goram, (so spelt in his Charter, but Goran on

Geoffrey de Gorham, Lord of the Manor of Westwick 
[Gorham-bury], occurs in the year 1182. (Cartulary of St. 
Alban^t ^SS. Cotton. Otho D. m. f. 29 b.) He is found 
as a witness to several charters, without date. (Ibid. fF. 30, 74 b.) 
His tenure of two-thirds of a knight's fee in Westwick, is re- 
corded in MSS. Cotton. Tiberius E. vi. f. 242.* 

Henry de Gorham, who succeeded Geoffrey in the posses- 
sion of this manor, occurs as a witness to charters dated respec- 
tively 1196 and 1198. (MSS. Cotton. Otho D. m. ff. 67, and 
27 b.) His military service for two-thirds of a knight's fee in 
Westwick, is stated in MSS. Cotton. Tib. E. vi. f. 243. 

Sir William de Gorham, in 1229, held two-thirds of a fee 
in Westwick, and Laurence de Brok held one-third of the same 
fee in Sheephall, formeriy held by John de Rungeton. (MSS. 
Cotton. Tib. E. vi. f. 242 b.) 

Sir William de Gorham, son of the preceding, paid mili- 
tary service for the same manor, in 1244, 1245, and 1257, when 
he was absent in Ireland. (MSS. Cott. Tib. E. vi. ff. 243, 243 b, 
244.) He occurs as a witness to charters in 1270, 1271, and 
1274. (MSS. Cotton. t Otho D. m. ff. 48, 81, 78 b; see also 
ff.47b, 89 b, 97b,99.)

169 b.) In 1303» he did bornage to the Abbot of Sl Alban's, 
for his fee in Westwyk. (Ibid. f. 175 b.) In 1306, he gave the 
foUowing bond to the Abbot, for repayinent of 22 marcs which 
the Convent had sent the King as a fine for his military service.

On the ôth November, 1306, John de Gorham made a re- 
tum, confirmed by his seal, of the extent of his manor in West- 
wyk, which is minutely detailed in the Register, MSS. Cotton. 
Tib. £. VI. fi*. 218 b, 219, 219 b. It appears that the mansion 
(which was doubtless the very building erected by Abbot Geof- 
frey early in Cent, xii.) with its appurtenances, consisted of a 
Hall of two stories, with chambers to the same; a Chapel, with 
a chamber ; a storied édifice, beyond the gâte, with a chamber ; 
a kitchen ; a bakehouse ; a dairy ; a larder, with a certain cham- 
ber; agranary, with a chamber for the bailiff*; a dwelling for 
the servants of the manor ; two oow-houses ; two sheep*hoiises ; 
a pig-stye ; and gardens : — the whole valued at 40«. per annum. 
There was also a certain messuage calied Newebury, with a 
sheep-house, a dove-house, and gardens ; valued at SSs. 4td. per 
annum. There were 985 acres of land, worth 63/. 9^. per an-» 
num, in Langfordelond, Mereslad, Gosemere, Layphull, Asse- 
croft, Manyngfeld, Aylwynescroft, Boanescroft, WhyteweUe- 
beth, Bradfeld, Brokfeld, Neubury, Pre]nnade, La More, and 



Kyngesberymaâe» Roger de Brok held, in the fee of Westwyk, 
a messuage and one carucate of land, in a hamlet called Bur- 
ston ; for which manor of Burston he was bound to contribute 
towards the knight's service a certain proportion which is illegi- 
ble in the MS. ; as was aiso the Lord of the manor of Sheephall. 
John de Gorham died in or before 1320 ; for in that year Al- 
phonsus de Veer^ to whom he had sold the réversion of West- 
wyk [Gorhambury], was in actual possession of the manor. 
(MSS. Cotton, Tib. E. vu f. 213.)

first three descents of that in G)llectanea Topographica» vol. V.

This ecclesîastic, respecting whose native country learned men 
hâve so much disputed,!^ undoubtedly came from the province of 
Maine; and probably descended remotely from the family of 
De Gorram of la Tanniére, of which there were still remaining 
some collatéral branches at least so late as the middie of Cen- 
tury XIII, (see above, p. 89). Leander Alberti, the earliest 
writer who names him^ states,» without hésitation, that he was a 
Frenchman. Echard, vho gives an elaborate accountP of his 
writings, places the matter beyond doubt, by référence to two 

* Leland (Scrip. Brit. cap. 338, ii. 330) claims Gorram for Engkmdt affirming^ 
tliat he wBfl a native of [Gorham-bury in] Hertfordabire ; a gradnate of Merton 
Collège, Oxford ; tben a Dominîcan Friar in that city ; whence he removed to 
Paris ** nerer to retnm." He cites, as his authority, the title, or rabric, of one of 
Gorram's works which opportunely came to his hands while mmmaging^ the dustj 
library of the Black Friars at Oxford ; — " ac^ntns Inscriptione libelli cujnsdam, 
ab eodem editi, qni mihi excatienti Bibliothecse pnlverem Dominicana ad Isidia 
Vadum opportmie se obtulit." He does not quote either the name or âge of thîa 
work; nor, as Echard (Script Ord. Prsedic. i. 447, edit. Paris, 1719) jusUy ob- 
serves, dœs he state whether this " Inscription " was by the original or a later 
hand : — it was, probably, the gloss of one of the monks of that house, who waa 
misled by the drcumstance that Merton possesses so many MSS. of Gorram'a 
worksy and who desired to daim so celebrated a writer for his own Convent. Not 
one of the eight Merton MSS., however, makes a similar pretension ; nor does 
the indefatigable Anthony Wood, himself the glory of Merton, include Gorram in 
his list of the writers of that Collège (Hist. Univ. Oxon. i. 87, edit. 1674), or eren 
name him in his Athense Ozonienses. Notwithstanding this defect of évidence, 
Bishop Baie (Illnst. Brit. Scrip. f. 176 b. edit. 1548), PiU (Relat. Hist. de Reb. 
Angl. p. 569, edit. 1619), the editor of the Antwerp édition of Gorram'a works in 
1620 (in the title-page), and Bp. Tanner (Biblioth. p. 333, edit. 1748), repeat the 
apocryphal statement of his being an Engliêhman. There is, indeed, one MS. (see 
n. 1 , in the text) in the Colophon of which, by the original hand, he is styled '* An- 
fliemg.** If that MS. be of Cent. ziii. as a later entry on the fly-leaf implies, this 
évidence must be allowed great weight ; but it is probably not older than Cent. 
ziT. ; and whatever be its âge, it is contradicted by an equally strong testimony in 
two other MSS. of Cent. xiii. referred to in note (i) next page. He bas been also 
ekimed as a Fleming, a native of Goraine, near Toomay, for no better reason thaa 
the similarity of names, by Swertins (Athenc Belg. p. 577), Desselin (Bib. Belg.), 
Coosin (Hist. Tomac. i. cap. 45), and Segoier (Laur. Belg.)

MSS. of some of his Serinons ^ written in Cent, xiii., while he 
was yet living, in whîch he is expressly called " Nicholas de 
Mans." In 1276, he was Prior'^ of the Dominîcan Convent 
of St. Jacques in Paris. He was a celebrated preacher: five of 
his serinons delivered in 1273, taken down Verbatim by Peter de 
Limoges, Fellow of ihe Sorbonne, are preserved^ in the Royal 
Library at Paris. He was confessor to Philip IV. : at his ur- 
gent request, the young King, being then only fifteen years of 
âge, in 1286 permitted the Dominicans at Paris to inter the 
heart of his father, Phihp III., in their Priory; a privilège 
which was warraly, but ineffectually, contested by the Abbot of 
St. Denis.s He died about ' 1295. His voluminous Commen- 
taries on the Psalms, EcclesiasHcus, the 4 EvangdistSy the 
Pauline and 7 Catholic Epistles, and the Apocalypse ; as also 
hisDt^^nc^îon^, andAbbreviatediSérmon^, are unquestionably au- 
thentic : but there is much doubt about the other works ascribed 
to him. The subjoined Catalogue of the MSS. of his real or 
supposed works, is the resuit of a récent^ examination : they 
are ail on vellum, except one (n. 74). 



Many of the Postîllœ on the Old Testament, ascribed to Gor- 
ram by Bishop Baie, Pits, Sixtus of Sienna, the Editor of the 
" Catalogus MSS™. Angliœ," Bishop Tanner, and other writers, 

<i MSS. Sorbonne 953 (probably identical with MSS. Royal librarj, Paria, Sor- 
boDoe, 797.) ; aee below, n. 78. — Also MSS. Victor, 762, aa cited by Echard : 
it is DOt aacertained whether thiê M S. exiats in tbe Royal Library. 

' He was not, howeyer, '* Provincial of the Dominican Order in Fhmoe,** aa he ia 
incorrectly styled in the titlea of the foUowing éditions of his works ; Cologne 1478, 
Hagenan 1502, Paris 1531, Antwerp 1617» 1630, and Lyons 1692. Echard ahows 
that this office was held by another peraon, at that period (i. 438). 

■ Echard cites for this fact, Johan. Parisiensis Chronicon, MSS. of St. Victor, 
448, f. 457 ; printed in Boulaei Hist. Unirersit Paris, iii. 471.

assigna the date 1390 (Bibl. Sanc. p. 380). 

■ For the examination of the Paris MSS. I am indebted to the Idndneaa of M.

ensions to authenticitj : —

Notingham, in cnjus expenris factum est, et fratris Willielmi de eadem, per cnjus 
laboriosam diligenciam scriptum et collectom est." There is no name of the an- 
thor, ezcept by a second hand, probably that of Walter Roberts, the notary of 
Bishop Reed by whom this MS. was given to the Collège about 1370; ** Postille 
Nich'i Gorham." On the same fly-leaf is, '* Liber M. Will'i Reed £p*i Cicistreu'

(9.) A différent Commentary on the Pentatxuch (ascribed to Gorram by a

BodL lÀb, O^.LoMd 161. It is a MS. of Cent, xiv., largest foL, doub. col., if. 994* 
It belonged to Archbishop Laud in 1633. Gênent begins thns: "Hic est liber 
mandatomm, &c. Bar. !▼.*'. ..." Hic notandum est primo, &c.:*' — it ends, "sepe- 
liri, et non alibi." [There is another MS. of this Postilla, in Durham Cathedral, 
A. I. 6. anonymoos.] Its authenticity is still more suspicions than that of the 
Merton MS. O. 6, 6.— (3.) Sixtus of Sienna (Bib. Sanc. p. S80) saw, about 1586, 
a MS. of the Postillœ on the Pentateuch, ascribed to Gorram, in the Conveni of 
St. John and St. Paul at Veniee : he does not state how it began. (4.) A Postilla 
on Job is stated by Echard (i. 438) to hâve existed, about 1719» in a folio MS* 
at Rodez in the department of Aveiron.

" Videbam coram me vitem in qua erant très propagines, &c." : the Commentary ; 

*' Liber iste Salomonts est de Sapientia, &c.** It breaks off in the middle of chap.

the author, by any hand ; it is ascribed to Gorram merely by the Editer of the 
" Catal. MSS. Anglise,** probably for no other reason than that the eorreeponéUny 
MS. O. 6, 6 (see No. [L] above), of which this is evidently a continuation by the 
same scribe, has the name of that author on the guard-Ieaf by the hand (apparently)

large letters of the same form as those of the text of the Psalter ;

fesses to give this Explicit, has suppressed this word, unfairly ;

il. On THE AcTS. ' 

This Commeutary is of doubtful authenticity. It commences, 
^* Scribe visum et explana, &c. Hab. il. Illis verbis primo &c." 
— It was printed at Antwerp, 1620. . 

38. Merton Coll. Oxf. O. 6, 12.— Cent. xiv. Large folio, 
doub. col. This MS. is described below, n. 54. The gênerai 
Explicit to this volume désignâtes this Commentary, trithoui 
naming the author^ as tbe << Postillœ communes super Actus." 
It was printed, irom this M S. at Antwerp, in 1620, as Gorram's. 
This MS. contains, aJso, Postillœ on the Catholic Epistles (n. 
54), and the Apocalypse (n. 58), both undoubtedly Grorram's. 

39. Emmanuel Coll. Camb. II. 1, 3.— Cent. xiv. A beautiful 
MS. Largest folio, dqpb. col., fF. 26. Colophon, by the first 
hand : << Expliciunt Actus Apostolorum,'' toUhout naming the 
aulhor. It contains, also, ail the Pauline Epistles; which pre^ 
cède the Acts ; see n. 44, below. 

iii. On all the Pauline Epistles.» 

After the Prologue, " Dedi te in lucem &c. Ysa. xlix.** — ^The 
Postilla b^ns, *^ In principio hujus operis sicut alîorum ope- 
rum 8cc." Echard (i. 440) has thrown a groundless suspicion 

* A différent Postilla on Acts, exista in MS8. Victor, Pari», 419, ^Echard, i. 
419). It u a MS. of Cent. xiii. (See n. 24 in the test.) Echard saya thatth» 
Postilla précèdes that on Mark, ascribed by the original hand to Crorram, and cer- 
tainly hia. It begins, *< Argamentiun hoc in Actns Apostolomm dÎTiditnr, &&'* 
— ^Tanner qnotes a MS. tu Pembroke Hall, Cambridge, as containing the Acts, and 
Catholic Epistles : bat he is mistaken ; that MS. contains only the Pauline Epis- 
tles ; see n. 46 in the text. 

■* Echard inclines to think that the Postillse on the Paulinb EpisTUESy con- 
tained in the MSS. in the text (nn. 40-^8), and printed at Cologne 1478, Hage- 
nan 1502, Paris 1531, 1531, Antwerp 1617, and Lyons 169S, are not the anthentic 
Works of Gorram, but that they were written by his cotemporary, Pierre de Ta- 
rantaise, afterwards Pope Innocent Y. He groonds this opinion on the Colophon 
of the Sorbonne MS. (n. 40 of the text), and of the Cambridge MS. (n. 43 of the 
text). He admits, howcTcr, that Peter de Palnde, who flourished abont 1320, 
dtes, as Gorram*s, the beginnings of each Prologne of the Postillse on the Epbtlei 
contained in the above MSS. Enhard thinks, nerertheless, that the gewumë Postillse 
of Gorram are those which exist in the four following MSS. — [\,) MSS. Collège 
of Navarre^ on Romans and Corinthianb only ; on the side of this Tolume waa 
written, '* Nicolai de Gorran," of course by alater hand : (2.) and (3.) MSS. Col- 
lege qf the Sorbonne 534, and 555, given to that Society abont 1270 ; bat theie 
Postillc ara aicribed ** Petro de Tarantaisio *' by alater hand : (4.) MSS. Omoeni 


OTer the authenticity vof thèse Commentaries; wbich Moreri 
(Grand Dict. v. 286) has adopted without further inouiry. The 
slender évidence on which this suspicion was entertained îs ad- 
duced in the note^ below, and is overthrown by the tes- 
timony of several of the MSS. vhich follow.— Six éditions of 
thèse Postillœ hâve been printed; Cologne, 1478; Hagenaw, 
1502; Paris, 1521; Paris, 1531; Antwerp, 1617; and Lyons, 

40. Sorbtmney Paris. — A MS. of Cent, xiii., given to the Col- 
lée about 1280. The Colophon, apparently by the first hand, 
ascribes the work ^^Petro de Tarantaisia '' (Echard, i. 440); 
but a cotemporary MS., in the Sorbonne, n. 47 below, ascribes 
five at least of thèse Epistles to Nicholas de Gorram. 

41. Mertan Coll. Oo/., O. 6, 11.— A ^S. of Cent, xiv., the 
same hand as O. 6, 12. n. 54, below. Folio, doub. col., ff. 257. 
Colophon, by first hand : <' Expliciunt Postille fris Nicholai de 
Gohram Isie] super Epias PauH, quas usum quicumq) pro sui 
utilitate eciam ad tempus habuerit, roget pro anima dni Hugo- 
nis de Notinghaoi, qui in oib} €a:pensas exhibuit multum prôpte,

Under a plate of horn, on the cover, <* Gorham super Epistolas 
&c. ex dono &c. ..." It con tains, also, the seven Catholic Epis- 
tles ; Èee below, n. 55. 

43. Public lAbrary, Cambridge^ lu 4, 21.— Cent. xv. M éd. 
folio, doub. col., fF. 225, in an indiffèrent hand. ^* Expliciunt 
Epie Apli Pauli scdm Petrum de Tharentasia ; " in the original 
hand. This M S. wants the first Episde to Corinthians. The 

^ St, Vieior 979» from GALATiitNB to Hebrbws only, without any name. In 
thete MSS. the commencement is, " Vidi alterum angelum, &c." " Cam secun- 
dnm gkMum, ête." It should be obsepred that only one of theae fonr MSS. ham 
the name of Gorram as the author, and that one, only on the cover of the yolome. 
Keferring to the MSS. in England, (nn. 41, 43, 44, 45, 46, 48, in the text,) Echard 
says* " Coriosoram cjos gentis erit ezplorare quodnam principîum habeant illK 
PostilUe, et an Gorrani nomen eadem operiê manu scriptam." (i. 440.) The re- 
qnired ezamination has now (after the lapse of more than a oentury) been made, 
and appears to be conclusive as to the authenticity of the Postille on the Fa vlinb 
Epistlss» as printed in the works of Gorram.

Of the Works contained in the preceding MSS. ail the Com- 
mentaries on the New Testament, and the Âbbreviated Ser- 
mons^ hâve been printed. It is a mistaken assertion of some 
authors, that the greater part of Gorraro's writings lie concealed 
in MS.; the Postillœ on the Psalms, and on Ecclesiasticus, 
with the Distinctions, being the only treatises, certainly his, 
which hâve not been published. 

In the ensuing list, the titles are âbbreviated ; a référence 
being made to some one library, at least, in which the work 
is known to exist, or to some author who describes it.

FtfochUl Antiqnities ; na well as in Dngdale's Baronage, where it is stated, yol. ii. 
p. 146, that among the possessions restored and oonfirmed to him in 20 Edw. III. 
was the patronage of the abbey of Bamham, which seems in contradiction to 
the free right of choosing their own Abbess granted to the Nuns by No. 7 of 
the présent charters. But the gift of Syiveston by Molyns was so valuable that 
the house was probably willing to waive the right conyeyed by Earl Edmund's

part of which is the " villa '* of Bekenesfeldy as member thereof (to 
whîch the saîd escheats belong), having been granted with its view of

confirmed by the King*8 predecessors. Confirms, also, the grant of mar- 
ket and fair at Bekenesfeld, which last they hâve had on the eve and

Cole*8 collections respecting Burnham Abbey are not so important as 
was SQpposed when the note in vol. IV. p. 266 of the présent work was 
written. They are chiefly transcripts from the works of Dugdale and 
Browne Willis, and other printed authorities, which bave been noticed 


(tbongti not fuUy) by Lyaons and the edîtors of the new Monasticon. 
The foUowiog particolars^ which are imperfectly given by Lysons, may 
be quoted :^ 

After the dissolution I find this monastery disposed of as fol- 
lows : — It was leased 36 Hen. VIII. for forty years to William 
Tyldesley, ■ which lease was renewed 4 Eliz. and a longer term 
granted him. 

Anno 17 Eliz. Paul Wentworth, Esq. b had a grant of the 
woods called Abbesse Park, at Burnhani, containing 109 acres, 
and other premises. He seems to hâve bought out, or otherwise 
obtainedjTyldesley's term : forhe lived in theabbey, as Ifind,aud 
turned the nuns' hall, which was open to the tiles, into a smaller 
room, and made chambers over it. The cloysters and chapel 
were, no doubt, pulled down at first, as most of the monastical 
churches were soon demolished, and the tombs, &c. of the dead 
horribly abused. In King Charles the First's reîgn, Sir Henry 
Fane got a lease, as did Sir John Wintour, and Hugh May 
afterwards obtained one in reversion. But King Charles II. 
granted it anno regni 27 to William Samwell, Esq. ^ for thirty- 
one years, on a quit-rent of 11/. 18«. Id, anno 1674 ; on the ex- 
piration of which, on the saîd quit-rent, King William and 
Queen Mary granted Jan. 4. 1691, for nînety-nine years to Ed- 
ward Viscount Villiers, the site of the monastery of Burnham, 
with lands, 8ic. belonging thereunto, reddend. 11/. ISs. Id. quit- 
rent to the Crown. Villiers Earl of Jersey's ninety-nine years 
commence from Michaelmas 1705, and so he bas seventy-four 
years to corne. (Cole's MSS. vol. xxxii. f. 38^. Addl. MSS, 
Brit. Mus. 5833.) 

*' The site of the late monastery of Burnham and divers lands thereto 
belongîng in Buckinghamshire/* were let 14 May 1807» to Geoi^e Earl 
of Jersey^ for 980/. 4$, 9d. for the first two years and a half, and 437/. 
129. 6d. for the remainder of the term^ which expired 10 Oct. 1835. 
The lease was purchased abont 1812 by Lord Gren ville (who erected^ 
and resided at, the neighbouring seat at Dropmore). On the falling in 
of the lease in 1835, the Crown sold the freehold by auction, and it 
was purchased by Mr. John Pocock, yeoman, for abont 18,000/. Mr. P. 

* See his epitaph in toI. IV. p. S75, and also see pp. 379, S98. 

^ See Tol. IV. p. S73 ; and in p. 304 of that yolame, note S read, that Mr. Paul 
Wentworth had probably the custody of the Duke of Norfolk in 1569, and not Mr. 
Tyldesley, who was then dead. Wentworth married Tyldesley's widow. 

* Lysons does not mention the names of Wintour, May, or Samwell; but, after 
Fane» says that it was in the families of Darrell and Lovelace, and Lord Lovelace 
sold it to the Villiers family. (p. ô'M,) 


haa since pulled down many parts of the conventaal buildings^ and 
erected new barns and stable». The annnal vaine, by the last Crown 
snrrey, was 467/. 10«. 3d. 

There are thèse engraved views of the ruins of Bumham Abbey : 1. 
in folio, by S. and N. Buck 1 730 (of which there is a rednced copy by 
Peltro) 3 2 and 3. in Grose s Antiquities, vol. v. 1 787, engraved by 
Sparrow; 4. an etching, in qnarto, pnblished Jan. 1, 1788; 5 and 6. 
two smaller in the same style, by H. Gilder ; 7. qnarto, in Storer 
and Greig's Select Views round London 1805, drawn by J. Powel, 
engraved by J. Storer (repnblished by J. and J. Cundee 1814) ; 
8. a vignette in the same work, drawn by J. Powell, engraved by J. 
Greig (copied in lithography, but the view reversed, by " Giscard 
1821**) ; and 9. an excellent view by J. Bnckler,(from the same point 
as that by the Bccks,) engraved by George Hollis, in folio, and presented 
by Lord Gren ville to the new édition of the Monasticon. In the Royal 
Ubrary at the British Muséum, is also a drawing by Mr. Dickson 1 787. 

A strange error is committed in describing the abbey seal in the new 
Monasticon (vol. vi. p. 546) : " It appears to reprosent a King seated, 
probably Richard King of the Romans the founder, crowning a female. 
In base is a shield of arms: on a chief three fnsils." The device is of 
course the common one of Christ crowning his sponse the Church. The 
arms are those of the second founder (see note in p. 124) Sir John de 
Molyns, viz. Sable, on a chief argent three bzenges gaules. The abbey 
itself is stated to hâve borne the same coat differently tinctured. Browne 
Willis says, *' The arms of this Couvent were, as 1 find. Or, on a chief 
argent three lozenges gules:*' which is foHowed by Grose, Lysons, &c. 
But Cole stigmatised thèse tinctures as false heraldry ; and he supposed 
that coat which remained in 1760 in one of the church Windows (see 
vol. IV. of the présent work, p. 283), viz. " Gules, on a chief argent 
three lozenges gules,'* was intended for the arms of the abbey, 

Respecting one of the Abbesses of Burnham, Alice Gclafre, Leland 
(Itin. iv. 5.) informs ns, that Sir John Golafre, who died at Queinton, 
co. Bocks, in 1379, '* had issue by aleman caullid Johenet Pulham, 
Alice after Prières [Abbess] of Burneham by Windsor, and John after 
knight}" the latter died at Wallingford in J396, and was buried near 
the monument of King Richard the Second at Westminster. 

In the Antiquarian Repertory, vol. ii. p. 278 (edit. 1809, p. 431), is 
an account and copy of an old MS. parchment discovered in the Abbey 
honse in 1776, and then in the hands of Mr. Joseph Toone of Maiden- 
head, intituled " the 13 Virtues of the Masse," and written in 1532. 

Some information respecting the résidents in the parish of Bumham, 
beyond what is stated in Lysons, will be found in HakewilFs History of 
Windsor, 4to. 1813, p. 274. J. G. N. 




(Conlinned from p. 66.) 


This Church, dedicated to St. Andrew, consists of a chancel 
and nave. 

Chancel. — The east end is lighted by three lancets, of whicb 
that in the centre îs the largest. There are vestiges of siaîned 
glass. On the north side are two Windows, one a lancet, the 
other of three trefoiled lights. In the latter is a shield, bearing 
the coat of White, surmounted by a helmet. On the south side 
are three Windows, viz. a lancet, a square window of two lighls, 
and one of two cinquefoiled lights with vestiges of staîned glass. 

Nave.— Open to the chancel. On the north side is a window 
of one trefoiled light, another of similar character, thirdly an 
oval modem light, and, fourthly, a lancet under the singers' 
gallery. On the south side is, 1. a modem square window of 
two lights ; 2. a pointed window of three trefoiled lights with a 
heading of three quatrefoils. In this are vestiges of stained 
glass. Under the gallery is a circular-headed window ; but pro* 
bably similar, in its original state, to that on the north side. The 
pulpit and reading-desk exhibit some old tracery, part being what 
is termed linen panelling, with finials, &c. The font is modem. 
The royal arms, carved and painted on the front of the singers* 
gallery, hâve the coat of Nassau on an escocheon of pretence, 
and were consequently erected in the reign of William IIL 
The Benefactions are also recorded on the gallery, viz. 

Sir Thomas Whyte, Knt. 100/. invested in 4 per cents,» — sick and 

STEPHENWHYTE.Esq.ÔO/. invested as above, — bonest and industrioas. 

Thomas Newland^ £sq. 50/. invested as above, — aged and infirro. 

John Duncan, D.D. 200/. invested in the 3§ per cents,^ — founding 
a Bchool and school of indastry. 

Mary Ann Warben, 100/. 3^ per cents S.S< — interest to be an- 
nnally given to 14 respectable parishioners. 1831. 

Mary Ann Warren, Church Clock, — chiefly in the hope ofpromot- 
ing punctoality in attendance on public worship. 1835. 

The Register commences as early as 1538, in which year 
there are two entries of burials only. It is stated to be in good

préservation. There is a later book of burials commencing in 
1678-9, under the acis called *^ WooUen Acts," in which are 
the attesting signatures . and seals of the magistrales before 
whom the affidavits were made. 

There are only three bells : The treble inscribed, " Ellis and 
Henry King made me 16T4." The second, « Fear God. 1673." 
The third, « N. Hiron, 1603." 

ExTERiOR. — At the west end is a low wooden tower and small 
steeple, much out of the perpendicular ; the walls are of flint. 
There is a square window of three cinquefoiled lights on the 
western side. The walls of this church are coated with cément, 
There is a plain circular-arched doorway on the south of the 
chancel. On the north side under the eastemmost window of 
the chancel are three quatrefoils in stone. The centre one has 
a shield charged with a cross; in the centre of the second is a 
rose; in the other a saltire. The north porch is of brick, with 
a tiled roofing and barge board. The doorway is circular, with 
a good diamond frette border. On the western side of the porch 
is the burial place of the Harrison family, with a slab recording 
the death of Richard Moore Harrison, Nov. 13th, 1812, aged 20 
years and 4 months, and of his mother in 1820, aged 54. 

Chancel. — Against the wall, on the left of the east window, 
is a brass of a man in armour kneeling. Near his left elbow is 
a gigantic hand with the finger pointing to a label inscribed, 
•* Sïa Trinitas unus Deus miserere nobis." 

There were originally four shields at the four corners of the 
stone. The inscription below is as follows : 

** Hic jacet Robertus Whyte,* Arinus, filius Jobis Whyte 
primog,quondam Dnus istius ville, qui obiit quarto die Augusti a**, 
regni Régis Henrici octavi quarto, cujus anime ppicietur Deus.'' 

On the north side is an altar tomb with a plain slab.^ The 
soutli side is panelled in five compartments with quatrefoils, 
within two of which are roses, and in the remaining three are 
shields. One of the shields is blank, probably from erasure, 

* "niiB Robert married Mai^garet, the daaghter of John Gainiford. John White, 
the father, û stated to hare married Eleanor, danghter of Robert Lord Hungerford; 
but it does not appear, from the pedigree of Hungerford, that there was a daaghter 
of that name. The inq. p. m. of John White, 9th Edw. 4th| atates that Robert was 
hia son and heir, and aged 14. 

^ This appears ftvm the Harleian MS. hereafter quoted, to be the monument of 
Henry White, son of the before-mentioned Robert. He married Elisabeth, dangh- 
ter and coheir of Robert Fenrother, of London, Alderman. Vide G. 16. Coll. Arm. 


Of the two others, one bears a chevron between three popinjays 
( fVhiie), impalingy On a chevron three swans between three shack* 
bolts fesswise 2 and 1 (Fenrother). Each coat should be withm 
a separate bordure semée of roundels, but the bordure is errone- 
ously carried round the whole shield. The other shield bears 
the impaled coat only. 

There are two stone brackets on eîther side of the east win- 
dow ; that to the north is plaîn, the other is embattled, and has 
a border of foliage. Below is a shield bearîng White impalîng 
Fenrother, as on the altar tomb. Nearly over thîs is a helmet sus- 

On the south side is a rich canopied monument, surmounted 
by a small figure holding a shield charged with the crest of 
White. Below are three shields, but so barbarously white- 
washed that the single coat of White is only just discernible on 
the centre shield. Undemeath the canopy are a man and his 
wife kneeling at a high desk^ with the figures of fourteen sons, 
six or seven bearing skulls, and five daughters, two or three also 
bearing skulls. The inscription is in three compartments : 

*^ Thomas and Agnes crye unto God and saye, we truste to see 
the goodnes of God in the lande of lyfe : they had isshewe xiiii 
sonnes and v daughters. Thyssayde Syr Thomas Whyte,Knight.<^

Soûles unto thy mercye. Syr Thomas departed in Loudon, 
and my Lady in Caunterbery the dayes and yeares above wryt- 
ten. God save the Quene." 

On the same side is a monument of stone with three oolumns, 
apparently of black marble, but painted over. Undemeath are 
the effigies of two men in armour kneeling at desks. A shield 
above one of thèse has the single coat of White charged with a 
crescent, and surmounted by the crest. A shield above the other 
has a coat charged with a crescent, impaling a chevron engrailed 

' Sir Thomas was son of Robert White and Elisabeth Englefield, and grandson 
of Robert White and Margaret (jainsford. His wife was Agnes, danghter of Ro- 
bert White, of Famham. Vide Aldershot, Collectanea, vol. VU. His will was 
dated Feb. SI, 1563, and proved Feb. 1, 1566. That of his wife Agnes was proTed 
In 1571. She mentions the monument for herself and her husband. The Inq. p>n- 
of Sir Thos. White was held at Odiham, Not. 9, 9 Elix. Henry, his son and beir, 
was then aged 34. 


between three leopard's faces/^l The inscriptions are defaced. 
Between tbe two effigies is inscribed the word " Fratres." 

There is aiso, agoinst this wall, a white marble monument oF 
Thomas Newland, Esq. who died August 4th, 1768, aged 60; 
with a long laudatory inscription. Arms : a chevron, surmounted 
by a cross pattée, and charged with three roundels. Crest : a 
hand holding a cross pattée. 

Against the north wall is the single figure of a female in brass, 
apparently removed from some slab elsewhere. On a stone 
affixed near it is painted the following inscription : 

" Hère lieth ï^lizabeth Paulett, y« daughter of Sir Thoâs 
Whit, Knight, wife to y« Lord Chidioke Pàlett, « who had issue 
by her William, Elizabeth, Katherine, and Susan, and was 
buriedy^xi of Aprill . . . ." 

Against this wall is also a marble monument surmounted by 
the single ooat of White with the crest. Undemeath is a man 
in armour kneeling at a desk, and immediately opposite to him 
are the effigies of two females. The inscription is in two com- 
partments : 

" Hère lieth buried Richard White, ' Esq. Lorde of y« 
Manor, sunne of Sir Thomas White, of South Walborowe, 
Knighte, who departed this life the • • . day of . . . . a^. 15... 

" Hère lieth buried Ellen White, wife of Richard White, 
Esquier, daughter of Stephen Kerton, of London, Alderman, 
who had issue by the said Richard one daughter named Anne, 
maried to George Phillpot, of Thruxton, Esq. who had issue 
3 sonnes and 8 daughters. The said Ellen departed this life 
hère the 12 December, a^. Dni. 1597." 

Over the desk and above the heads of the maie and female 
figures is a shield bearing the coat of White, impaling quar-

' A younger son of Sir Thomas White. John White, the son of Thomas White, 
second son of Sir Thomas, was heir maie of the family in 1593. The elder brother 
Henry left three daughters his coheirs : Agnes, wife to Thomas Scudamore ; Phi-

God approve.

LiTTLE WoLFORD Hall, in thc parish of Great Wclford, în 
the county of Warwick, bas been for many générations the seat 
of the aucient family of Ingram, their ancestor <* Engeram de 
Wlwarth " having in the third of John levied a fine of ten acres, 
vfith the appartenances, to one Simon de Berton hère, and in 
the thirty-sixth of Henry III. it appears that the same Ingeram 
held halfa knight's fee hère of the Baron of Staiford.^ An ab- 
stract of the pedigree of this Ingram is given in Thomas's édi- 
tion ofDugdale's Warwickshire ; and in the Visitation of that 
county in 1682, five descents of the family are given. The Visi- 
tation of Worccstershire in 1634^ préserves also the descent 
of a branch of this family seated at £arls' Court in that county. 
By the decease of Mrs. Barbara Ingram, who died unmarried at 
Thenford, in the county ofNorthampton, June 28, 1835, aged 
89, the ancient family of Ingram of Wolford became extinct, 
and the property devolved, by the will of her cousin, Mrs. 
Mary Ingram, who died in 1825, to Samuel Amy Severne, Esq. 
of Wallop hall, in the county of Salop. Little Wolford 
bail, the vénérable seat of the family, being in the last state of 
decay, and the roof having partially fallen in, the following memo- 
randa of its state in April 1840 may, perhaps, not be hereafter 
uninteresting. The bouse is mostly of stone, and forms three 
sides of a square, in the centre of which is a vast holly, which 
nearly fills up the little quadrangle, which is inclosed by a wall 
and gâte, now quite gone to decay. Opposite the gâte is a porch 
of a date much later than the principal part of the bouse, lead- 
ing into the hall. Over the door, eut in stone, are the arms of 
Ingram, quartering H&stang; over ail, on an escutcheon of pre- 
tence, Ermine, a mill rind sable, MollinSt and the date and 

* Dugdale*8 Warwickshire, Thomai*fi editioiii p. 595. 


letters H. I. A. 1671, for Hastings Ingram and Anne his wife, 
daughter of Edward Mollins, of West Hall, in the county of 
Dorset, Esq. The door itself, within the porch, is richly carved 
in oak, and appears to' be as old as the commencement of the 
fifteenth century. The original character of the hall has been 
spoilt by a modem flat ceiling, and, with the exception of some 
ooatsof arms in good painted glass, préserves few memorials of 
its ancient state. The shields still existing are as follows : 

1. Ermine, on a fess gules tliree escallops or, Ingram^ quar- 
teriiig. Azuré, a chief gules, over ail a lion rampant or, Hastang^ 
impaling, Azuré, a cinquefoil ermine, Astley. This coat is twice 

2. Ingram, quartering Hastang, Impaling, Barry of six, or and 
azuré, on a bend gules three cinquefoils argent (Lingayne). 
This ooat is also twice repeated. 

3. Ingram, quartering Hastang, impaling, Argent, two bars 
sable, in chief three ogresses, in the fess point a mullet of the se- 
cond. ( ?) 

4» Two coats of Ingram quartering Hastang, with the crest, 
on a wreath argent and gules, a griffin's head erased, quarterly 
gules and argent. 

In the Windows remain also a rose argent crowned or, the 
badge of the house of York; and on a wreath a garbe or, between 
two lions rampant argent, the crest of Cecil (?) 

In this hall were formerly suspended several pairs of spurs; a 
farm in the parish being held of the Ingrams by the feudal 
tenure of presenting them on Christmas Day ; the custom ha& 
fallen into disuse the last seven or eight years. 

On the right of the hall are, or rather tnere^ the living rooms 
(for they hâve fallen in, and the roof has been removed since 
April 1840) ; on the left are the offices, still used as a farm house ; 
the chimney-pieces, carved in stone and oak, in the style of 
James L, formerly in the right wing of the house, préserve the 
arms of Ingram and Hastang, impaling, Barry of four, argent 
and gides, parted per pale indented and counterchanged, Peyto. 

The left wing appears on the whole the most ancient; the 
side which faces the court, is remarkable for two gables, which, 
unlike the rest of the house, are built principally of wood. The 
kitchen contains also some curious panelling of stone, which,. 


with a small window near tbe back entrance in Ûûè part of the 
house, roay be of the date of Henry VI. 

A small portion of the house appears to hâve been altered in 
the reign of Queen Anne, but the greater part of it remains an 
early spécimen of English douiestic architecture*

(From the Denton Papers, Harl. MSS. 2112.) 

The followiDg ancient Certificate of descent is tnwscribed from a 
document presenred among the Holme papers (HarL MSS. 2112), 
which 18 stated to hâve been a copy of a MS. extant among the deeds of 
the Hides of Denton^ in Lancashire» in 1 G53, bat which was probably 
a translation from a Latin original. As the orthography of the copy if 
nncertain» the modem spelling bas been sabstituted» bat nothiog else 
bas been altered or added except brief notes and the explanatory 
genealogîcal table prefixed, which is limited to the declaratioos of the 
certificate, excepting what is placed in parenthèses. 

The sabject is the descent of Urmeston, near Manchester, from pro- 
prietors bearing the local name, tbrough tbeir grantees^ the Ashtons of 
Ashton-on-Mersey, and a yoanger Une of Venables» to Hide of Urmes- 
ton, an elder branch of the hoase of Denton^ and janior Une of Hyde, 
of Hyde and Norbury. 

To the Lancasbire genealogist it may possess some intereat, as identi* 
fying the Ashtons hère named, and iUastrating the descent of family and 
property mentioned. It also in some degree illastiates the wild man- 
ners of the foarteenth centnry in a district now covered by dense popu- 
lation } the district, namely, between the lordshîps of Danham and 
Trafford, sîtnated on the banks of the Mersey, and adjacent to the 
boundaries of the sister Palatinates.

*' The Coppy of the writeing following i^ written în a fayre 
hand, and annexed to the descent of Hyde, of Urmeston, 
supra, 1559." 

To ail that this présent record shall see or hear, Thomas 
Hide of Urmeston the elder,^ and Thomas Ashton of Sale, and 
Robert Ashton of Urmeston, send greeting in our Lord God 
everlasting. Forasmuch as it is a chief and meritorious thing, 
in quarrels and things unknown and brought ont of memory, 
true witness to record and give, know ye us of our fidelities to 
hâve recorded and given witness by the record and knowledge 
of John son of Gilbert of Ashton (father of the aforesaid Tho- 
mas of Ashton and Robert) who ail the roatter following did 
know, and see, and was of the âge seventy years the day of his 
death, — that there was one Adam, son of Richard de Urme- 
ston, ^ which, by his deeds, gave and granted to the said Gil- 
bert of Ashton, and his heirs, ail his lands of Urmeston, with ail 
the demesne of the same town, with wards, reliefs, escheats, &c. 
as in the said deed, in the treasury of the said Thomas Hide re- 
maining, at large is contained. 

And the aforesaid Gilbert of Ashton, by his deed, gave and 
granted to the aforesaid Adam and his heirs the moiety of the 
town of Ashton*upon-Mersey, and ail other his lands and tene- 
ments in Sale and Altrincham ; and for that the lands and tene- 
ments aforesaid in Urmeston were not so much of worth by year 
as the aforesaid lands and tenements in Ashton, Sale, and 
Altrincham, the aforesaid Adam of Urmeston (after that he was 
seised in the lands aforesaid of Ashton, Sale, and Altrincham) 
granted, and by his writing confirmed to the same Gilbert and 
his heirs for ever, a certain annual rent of iij/. by year, to be 
taken at two terms of the year forth of ail his land aforesaid of 

j * Tliomas Hide the elder, hère mentioned, occnn in the Tisitation of Lancuhire, 

ai ihe son and heir of Ralph and Alice Hide of Urmeston (afterwards notioed) and 
as party to a deed, 1 Hen. VI. (14SS-3}, respecting the marriage of his grandson, 
Thomas Hide the younger. 

, ^ Urmeston, or Ormeston (Orm-estone), in the puish of Flizton and barony of 

Manchester, was held (in part at least) by the heirs of Orme Fits Ailward, at the 
time of the T. de Neville snrrey ; bnt whether the portion hère dednoed was de- 
riyed from them by the Urmestons, or if so, whether by descente or otherwise» doea 
not appear. See Collectanea, yol. VII. p. 13. 


Ashton, Sale, and Altrincham, for that if it should fortune for 
the afbresaid annual rent to be behind in part, or in ail, at any 
feast in the same writing contained, it should be lawful to the 
said Gilbert and his heirs to distrain in ail the land of Ashton, 
Sale, and Altrincham aforesaid, as in the said writing is con- 

And afterwards the aforesaid Adam of Urmeston gave and 
sold the aforesaid moiety of the town of Ashton to one John of 
Leigh, and EUen hiswife,<^ and the aforesaid John and EUen 
gave the same moiety to William of Venables and Katharine his 
vife, and to the heirs of their two bodies lawfuUy b^otten. 

Which said William, in the time of the aforesaid Gilbert 
of Ashton, did not pay the aforesaid covenants of annual rent 
aforesaid, and for that the said Gilbert took certain oxen, of the 
aforesaid William, and them impounded and kept, and upon 
that, the said William took an action of trespass before the Jus- 
tices of Chester in the county there, against the said Gilbert, for 
taking of the said oxen ; and the aforesaid Gilbert came and 
shewed forth the same writing of the yearly rent aforesaid 
against the said William, as in the record thereof made and en-* 
rolled before the same Justices more fully is contained, which 
record remaineth in the treasury of the same Thomas of Hide. 

And also know ye us the aforesaid Thomas of Hide, Thomas 
of Ashton, and Robert of Ashton, to hâve recorded, and by the 
knowledge which we hâve of the aforesaid John, son of Gilbert 
of Ashton, to hâve witnessed, that the said Gilbert of Ashton 
took to wife Margaret, daughter of Roger of Chedull, Knt. and 
of her hnd issue one daughter named Hawise, daughter and heir 
of the sait! Gilbert. Which said Hawise was married in her 
childhood to Henry, son of John TrafFord of Newcroft, ^ being 
within âge at the marriage of the said Henry and Hawise*

it in an elaborate pedigree of Trafford of Trafford, compiled by Vemon, and pre-

The saîd Gilbert gave his manor of Urmeston, and ail hîs 
lands there, to one Robert, « parson of the church of Ashton- 
upon-Mersey, and his heirs for ever ; and the said Robert, the 
parson, granted the said manor^ with the appurtenanoes, and 
the atbresaid lands, to the said Gilbert, for term of life, so that 
after the decease of the aforesaid Gilbert, the said manor and 
lands aforesaid, with the appartenances, should wholly remain 
to the aforesaid Henry (son of John) and Hawise, and to the 
heirs of the said Hawise, as in a deed thereof made, and a record 
of the said Robert, the parson, more fully is contained; and 
afterwards a divorce was made between the said Henry and 
Hawise, and the said Henry took to wife one Joan Wprkesley^ 
ând the said Hawise (by counsel of the aforesaid Gilbert, her 
father) took to husband one John, son and heir to the said Wil- 
liam Venables, which said John and Hawise had issue between 
them, one daughter named Alice ; and thereupon the said Ha- 
wise died, and the aforesaid John Venables after took to wife 
Joan, daughter of the aforesaid John of TraiFord (sister of the 
said Henry) and he begat another daughter, named Cicely, who 
afterwards took to husband Robert of Ashton, of Ashton-upon- 
Mersey. ' 

And in the mean time it happened that the aforesaid John of 
Trafibrd did feloniously kUl the aforesaid Gilbert of Ashton, at 
Urmeston, in a field called the Barrowfield bank, and hid him 
in a certain rindle there, and straightway thereupon went his 
way, and took ail the deeds and muniments being in the trea- 
sury of the said Gilbert, and so by gift of the said Robert, 
parson of the church aforesaid ; and hereupon, lest the said 
manor and lands aforesaid, after the death of the said Henry, 
should descend to the same Alice, as heir of the said Hawise, 
according to the gift of the said Robert the parson, the said 
Henry son of John, by a false consent between him and one 
Richard, son of the aforesaid Adam of Urmeston, caused inden- 
ture to be made between him and the said Richard, that the said 
Richard should recover against him the aforesaid manor and 
lands, and afterwards divided the lands between them which be- 
longed to the said indentures (as in the said indenture is wit*

daughter of Gilbert. 

And the said John of Venables his daughter did often en- 
force that she should marry one Adam of TrafFord, (brother of 
Joane, wife of the said John Venables,) and the same Alice long 
kept within the city of Brunnegg («îc), and the same Alice fled 
from them, and in the night time came to Ashton aforesaid ; and

Ralph) recovered the said manor, lands, and tenements, and ail 
the lands there which lately were of the said Gilbert (the grand- 
father of the said Alice, wife of the said Ralph) and after^

Earldom of Lincoln. — ^Vol. I. p^. 102, 200, 346. 

Ralph Earl of Chester was also Eàrl of Lincoln in the time 
of King Henry IIL He had no issue, and upon his deatb, 
which happened in the 16th or 17th year of that King's reign, 
his four sisters were found to be his heirs. But before he died 
he had given the Earldom of Lincoln* to his youngest sister 
Hawise, the wife of Robert de Quincy. The grant is curions,* 
and though evidently made without any licence from tlie King, 
appears to bave been as effectuai as if it had passed under the 
Great Seal, and the lady to whom it was so given had interest 
enough to get it immediately settled upon John de Lacy who 
bad married her only daughter, Margaret, with limitation how- 
ever to him and his heirs by her said daughter.^» 

When an Elarldom descended thus to a female, her husband, 
if she married, became the Earl. Alice de Lacy, great-grand- 
daughter of the abovenamed John de Lacy and Maigaret his 
wife, was the last heir of that Une. She married Thomas Plan- 
tagenet, Earl of Lancaster, who became also Earl of Lincoln in 
her right, and on his attainder in 14 Edward H. appears to hâve 
forfeited this along with his other honours. The King, however, 
in the 16th jear of his reign restored it to her for her life.c I 
find that Eubolo Lestrange, to whom she was afterwards married, 
was also honoured with thé title of Earl of Lincoln.^ She died 
without issue on Thursday after the feast of St. M ichael, in the 
22nd year of King Edward III. and the Earldom of Lincoln, 
according to the grant before cited, which settled it on John de 
Lacy and his heirs by Margaret de Quincy his wife, ought to

It appears that the King afterwards of his espedal grâce granted 
back to her, for her support, Gifford's Castle in Wales, and several ma- 
nors, inclading Holbom, in the snburbs of London, to hold dnring her 
life, with reversion to Hngh le Despencer the younger, and his heirs. 
He also restored to her for life (20 Dec. anno 16th) the twenty ponnds 
pro tertio denario Corn, Linc, which had belonged to her father, and 
which, upon the forfeiture of her late husband, had been seized into the 
King*s hands. She was shortly afterwards married to Eubolo Lestrange, 
who during the coverture received in her right the twenty ponnds an- 
nnity for the Earldom of Lincoln, and from that circnmstance has been 
by somé ranked amongst the Earls 5 but without good authorîty, for the 
marriage took place in or about 19 £dw. II. and he was summoned to 
Parliament as a Baron only from that period to his death, which hap- 
pened in 9 Edw. 111.^ The Lady took another husband of the name of 
Hngh de Frêne, who is also sometimes erroneously styled Earl of Lin- 
coln. She died, however, without issue anno 22 Edw. III. and in the 
following year the King granted the twenty pounds, " nomine Comitis 
Lincoln'* to Henry Plantagenet^ brother and heir of her first husband.

According to the feudal System, the young Earl became a 
ward of the Crown, and the Crown might grant away the.ward- 
ship and marriage of the minor, but in this case it appears 
that the King gave away evén the title and dignity, The Earl 
died in 24 Edw. I. at which ûme fais son and heir was only four 
years old. In 26 fklw« I. I find Ralph de Monthermer, who had 
married the widow, summoned as Earl of Gloucester to attend 
the Kjng in his expédition to Scotland ; and to ail the Pariia- 
ments during the remainder of that reign, he was called by the 
title of Earl of Gloucester and Hertford. But upon the acces- 
sion of Edward the Second,* the young Earl Gilbert de Clare, 
though not 17 years old, appears in full possession of ail his 
honours, and is regularly summoned to ail the Parliaments as 
Earl of Gloucester, and his father-in-law from that time takes 
his station in the rank of the Barons.

who died childless in 1695, and his eldest sister Anne, the only

Hère, as I take it, the first Barony created in the &mily of

p. 373, Une 5), fell into abeyance, and so continued amongst the 
issue of the said Elizabeth Strangways and Margery Conyers 
until the year 1641, when King Charles the First was pleased 
to exercise the royal prérogative in favour of Sir Conyers Darcy, 
then one of the heirs of the youngest daughter, whose other re- 
présentative was Dame Anne Pennyman ; but, this lady dying 
without issue in 1644, Sir Conyers Darcy became at her death 
the sole heir of the body of the said Margery Conyers, 

The issue of Sir Conyers will be given when I come to that 
part of this article which relates to his Une. I shall close this 
with observing that at the death of the late Earl of Holdernesse, 
who was understood to be the last heir mole of the body of Sir 
Conyers, the effect of the patent of 1641 ceased entirely, and 
this second Barony of Darcy, with Menill, fell again into a state 
of abeyance, and so remains at this day (1806), between the heir 
or heirs of Elizabeth Strangways (for I know not whether there 
be only one or more) and the heir of Margery Conyers, that is, 
the présent Duke of Leeds, whose mother was the only child and 
heir of the said Earl of Holdernesse. 

Elizabeth Strangways had issue eight sons and four daughters; 
the eldest son. Sir Richard, was father of Sir James and two 

f Vioc. 110. 201. 


daugfaters. Sir James by Alice his wife, sister and coheir of the 
last Lord Scrope of Upsale, was father of Sir Thomas and one 
daughter. ^ Sir Thomas had issue only a son named James, 
ilpon whose death in anno 38 Hen. VIII. Robert Roos, Esq. 
was fbund to be his cousin and sole heir, and also grandson and 
heir of the said Alice Scrope, being son and heir of Mary only 
daughter of the said Sir James Strangways and Alice Scrope. ^ 
Thîs Robert Roos was of Ingmanthorpe, in the county of York. 

I cannot follow the line of his posterity by évidence of public 
records : but according to Thoroton, in his History of Notting- 
hamshire, page 376, he had a daughter Bridget, who was his 
sole heir, and became the wife of Peter Roos, of Laxton, in that 
county, by whom she had two sons, Gilbert and Peter. Gilbert 
had two daughters, of whom one died unmarried, and the other, 
named Elizabeth, was, in 1635, wife of one William Thomas, 
esq. of E^ex. 

If there be any issue now existing from this Elizabeth Thomas, 
a point upon which I am utterly ,uninformed, her heir or heirs 
will be the représentative or représentatives of Elizabeth Strang- 
ways, and so coheir or coheirs with his Grâce the Duke of Leeds. 
If there be no issue from her, then the issue of Peter Roos, 
her uncle, brother of her father Gilbert, will stand next in the 
représentation of said Elizabeth Strangways. 

According to Thoroton, this Peter had a son Gilbert, and four 
daughters; and Gilbert, who died in 1661, had two sons, Gilbert 
and Peter, and three daughters, Mary, Frances, and Troth. If 
both thèse lines of Roos hâve failed, the other chances of issue 
from the two daughters of Sir Richard Strangways, and the seven 
brothers and four sisters of Sir Richard, are so numerous as to 
preclude the probability, though not the possibility, of a total 
ffdiure in that line : îndeed, 1 think I could track the issue of 
several of the females down to the présent time ; but I am not 
Me to say positively that either or any of them would prove to 
be the heir ; I therefore think it best to leave that point open to 
the future investigation of persons who may conceive themselves 
to hâve an interest in the clearing it up. 

P. 373^, L 55, noie. The mother of this William was Eleanor, 

^ Ped. in CoU. Armi • * £ic. p. m. Jacobi StrAAgwayi 33 Hen. VIIL 


daughter of John Lord Scrope of Upsale; and his wifê was Eu-, 
femia, daughter of Sir John LAngton, knt. ^ 

P. 374^, L 45. He had two wives, Dousabel, daughter and. 
heir of Sir Richard Tempest, knt^ and Edith, sister of William 
Lord Sandys, of the Vine. By the first he had issue three sons» 
Sir George, Richard who died without issue, and Sir Arthur, 
and one daughter, named Mabell. By the second only a daugh- 
ter, Elizabeth, married to Sir Marmaduke Constable, of Flam* 
borough, knt. 

Sir George Darqr, the eldest son, was restored, as in the text. 
He married Dorothy, daughter and heir of Sir John Melton, of 
Aston, co. York, knt* He and his wife were buried under a 
raised tomb on the south side of the chanoel of Brayton, not 
Bempston, church. 1 

Upon the restoration of this George Lord Darqr, I think it 
proper to remark, that though in the beginning of the Act it is 
enacted that.he and the heirs mufeof his bodvshall be taken and 
known by the name of Lord Darcy, and shall hâve place and 
voice in Parliament, &c. as a Baron of the Realm ; yet it is 
afterwards further enacted and declared, that he and Ais hehrs 
shall be restored in blood only as heir and heirs of the said Tho- 
mas Lord Darcy, and that he and his heirs shall be enabled to 
demand, ask, hâve, hold and enjoy ail and every such honours, 
castles, manors, lordships, and ail manner of hereditaments, &c» 
Upon this view of the Act, I cannot but think that the fair oon* 
struction is, that upon the failure of heirs maie of his body the 
heirs gênerai are let into the inheritance ; and this opinion will, 
I conceive, be much fortified, if not entirely confirtoed, by what 
foUows : • 

When the restored Lord came to Parliament he was ranked 
and sat there as the junior Baron, and oontinued during his life 
to hold only such place as was due to him according to the date 
of his restitution : but after his death his son's name was in- 
serted in the old place, and in anno 1 Elizabeth was'admitted to 
the ancient seat of, and rank formerly enjoyed by, his attainted 
ancestor. ^ I do not find any steps taken by him to obtain this 
admission; but the fact itself appears to me to amount to a

dedàon of tbe House, espedally as the Lords Darcy oondnued 
in midîsturbed possession of that precedence tili the maie line 
became eoctinct in 1635. » It seems, however^ highly probable 
that this admission of Lord Darcy was consîdered as a regolar 
conséquence of the tfaen récent décision in favour of Lord Staf- 
fordj wbo stood precîsely in similar drcumstances, under an 
Act of restitution which, like this of Lord Darcy, limited the 
Barony ai firnt to the heirs maie of the body of the restored 

With this impression on my mind, I prooeed to state$ that 
npon the death of John Lord Darcy, the last heir maie of the 
body of the restored Lord in 1635, hls sister Anne, wife of 
Henry Savile, of CSopley, esq. became the heir gênerai ; and if she 
had any interest in the Barony thus restored and revived in her 
great-grandiather, that interest is now ( 1806) vested in Lord Stour- 
ton and Lord Petre, as lineal descendants and coheirs of her body. 

P. 375, 1. 15, afler ** mentioued." In Dugdale's printed book 
of Sommons to Parliament, two writs appear in the name of 
Arthur Darcie de Darcie, CheV. viz. one in the Ist and the 
other in the 5th year of Queen Elizabeth, that is, in her first and 
second Parliaments, and thèse writs hâve, in a récent publication 
upon the Dormant and Extinct Baronage of £ngland,<> been as» 
cribed to this Sir Arthur Darcy. 

It will appear, however, from what follows, that those writs 
were not intended for him, but for his nephew John, the son 
and heir of his eldest brother George, the restored Lord Darqr. 

Queen Elizabeth opened her first Parliament on the 25th of 
January, and in the Journal of that day there is the following 
entry, viz. << Hodie introductum fuit brève quo Johannes Domîp 
nus Darcy de Darcy pressenti Parliamento summonebatur, qui 
est admissus ad suum in sedendo eminentiœ locum salvo jure 
alieno/' P 

On the 18th March following he delivered in his proxy in the 
name of John Lord Darcy, q and there was no odier Lord 
Darcy in the first Parliament of Elizabeth except this John 
and die Lord Darcy of Chiche* 

Thus much with respect to the writ of Ist Elizabeth. As 
lo the writ of the 5tb, it seems only necessary to observe, that

Sir Arthur was dead two years before it issued, and his son 
and heir was Henry, not Arthur. It may» therefore, be safely 
pronounced an error in thé printed list. I hâve thought it right 
to correct this mistake^ lest the noble Lord, who is heir gène* 
rai of Sir Arthur, might be misled, as I was^ till I had inves* 
tigated the point, to conceive that he had a claim under those 
writs to a Barony of higher antiquity than that by which he 
iiow sits in Parliament.

{Addendum to the Article printed in FoL VIL p» 57.) 

In another part of the volume of Mr. Townsend's MSS. the 
foUowing occurs : 

I discover that Sir James Fenys, Knt. who was created Lord 
Say and Sele, was not the heir of the body of Joan, third aunt 
and coheîr of John de Say, and therefore neither the patent of 
création, nor the surrender of Clinton, nor both united, oould 
hâve the effect of terminating the abeyance of the Barony of 
Say. It was the elder brother of Sir James, named Rc^er, that 
was the heir; which Roger had issue two sons, Richard and 
Robert. Richard obtained the Barony of Dacre by marriage, 
which is now enjoyed by his heir. Robert married, and at his 
death in 1509, left two sons, John and Robert, and two daugh- 
ters, Katharine and Elizabeth. 1 find no acoount of any of thèse 
except Elizabeth, who married to Sir Ralph Chamberlayne of 
Gedding, in SufFolk, and in the pedigree of Chamberlayne she is 
described as the sole heir of her father ; but whether she left any 
issue or not I cannot say, nor is it of importance hère, since the 
portion of the Barony of Say which belonged to the aforesaid 
Joan, passed to the issue of the elder brother, Richard Fenys 
Lord Dacre, and is nùw united with the Barony of Dacre. 

A pedigree in MS. Ph. no. 3. 37, p. 23, in Coll. Arms, makes 
Fitzralph Chamberlayne, of Su£folk, esq. 1582, son of that Sir 
Ralph, and MS. C. ii. 15, gives the name of Fitzralph, Ch'. as 
then living. 

Neither Dugdale nor Collins mention tliis Robert Fiennes. 
In another MS. (Black Bookof Nobility) he is called second wn^ 
and npon reoonsidering the matter I am of opinion he was not 
the eldest. 

Quere ? Did not the surrender of Clinton, who was certainly 
one of the two coheirs of the Barony of Say, to James Fenys, 
brother of the other coheir, place James in Clinton's situation^ 


and make him ooheir with his brother? If so, then the summon- 
îng of James may be considered as a termination of the abey-*

are held of the King in capite (ut dicitur) to hold to them and 
their heirs, of the said King and his heirs by the due and ac- 
customed services, and that they being so seised might grant 
the same to the said Earl, to hold to him and the heirs of 
his body begotten, of the said King and his heirs by the Hke 
services for ever ; provided that if said Earl should die without 
issue of his body begotten, the said castles and lordships should 
remain to the King and his heirs for ever. And the King fur- 
ther granted (quantum in ipso fuit) that the said Earl, as to ail 
other castles^ lordships, manors, lands, and tenements, with their 
appartenances, knights' fées, and advowsons, which he had in 
demesne, or in reversion, as well in England as in Wales (held 
of the King) except the manor of Ashieigh in county of Norfolk, 
might alienate in fee simple to whorasoever he might chuse; 
and from such persons might receive back and résume such 
éstate in the premises as he might think fit either to hiniself 
alone or jointly with others in fee simple, fee tail, or for term 
of life : 

And the said castles, lordships, manors, lands, and tenements, 
so by him to be alienated, he might entail, give, or grant to 
whomsoever he should please, to hold of our said Lord the King 
and his heirs by due and accustomed service. And thereupon 
(as it was said) the said Earl John by his deed enfeoffed Walter 
Amyas, John Abraham, and others, in the said castle and Earl* 
dom of Pembroke, the castles and lordships of Tylby and Kil- 
garron, and ail his other castles and lordships, manors, lands, 
and tenements which the said Earl held of the King in demesne 
or reversion, as well in England as in Wales, except the manor 
of Ashieigh, co. Norfolk, and also ail other his manors, lord- 
ships, lands, and tenements, &c. (as above) which were held not 
of the King. And afterwards (ut dicebatur), the said Walter, 
John, &c. by their deed granted to the said Earl as well the said 
castle and Earldom of Pembroke (as the other possessions as 
aforesaid) Ashieigh excepted, for five years, within which term 
the said Earl released and surrendered to said Walter, John, &a 
his estate therein, and ail his right and claim that he had there- 
in ; which deed follows in thèse words : 

John de Hastings, Earl of Pembroke, Lord of Weisford 
and of Bergavenny, to ail, &c. Whereas we hâve heretofore en<- 
feoffed Walter Amyas, &c. in ail our castles, lands, and tene* 



ments, except the manor of Ashieigh. We hâve confirmed and 
granted to them and tbeir heirs for ever ail our right and claim 
therein (Ashieigh excepted). In witness whereof we hâve put 
our seal to thèse présents. Given at our house in Londou, 15 
April 46 Edw, IIL 

And afterwards (ut dicitur) the said Earl» upon his going into 
Gascony, executed a certain writing mentioning the said feoff- 
ment, and enjoining the feoffees to fulfill the contents of bis 
will enclosed under his seal, and sent the same to his feoffeea 
from beyond sea. And upon the said Earl's death beyond seas, 
there came certain of the feoffees, viz. the said Walter Amyas» 
&c before the Council of our Lord the King at Westminster, in 
the Quindenes of St. Michael, anno 49 Edw. IIL and delivered 
the said writing, which being opened, seen, and read, was of the 
foUowing tenour : 

*^ John de Hastings, Earl of Pembroke, Ix>rd of Weisford and 
of Bergavenny, to our dear and welbeloved Walter Amyas, && 
Whereas we hâve enfeoffed you by our deed in our casdes, lord- 
ships^ manors, &c. &x:. as by said deed will appear, we let you 
know that our will is, and we charge, enjoin, and require that, if 
it happen to us to die beyond sea before our retum to England, 
ail our debts shall be paid, &c. and if we die without heirs of 
our body, we will that our manor of Tottenham shall be amor- 
tised to the church of St. Paul to hold our anniversary ; and if 
said manor cannot be amortised, then we charge and require 
that it should be sold and the money applied to the profit of the 
said Church of St. Paul and the Charterbouse in London. 

P. 578, 1. 15. William Beauchamp appeared before the King 
in Council, anno , and declared himself ready and willing 
to comply with the terms of his cousin's will in every point, 
and to bear the entire arms {^ intégra arma") of the said Earl 
of Pembroke and to obtain the King's consent that he and his 
heirs might hâve, receive and bear the name of Earl of Pem- 
broke, according to the force and effect of the said wUl, in case 
the said Earl should die without issue of his body, and prayed 
the said King and Council, and the said trustées, that the state 
and right of him the said William Beauchamp in tlie premises 
might be observed entire and unbroken. But it appearing that 
the said Earl, who died beyond sea, had left an heir of his body 
then living, and a minor, it was considered (consideratum est) 


Yhat the King shouM hâve the custody of the castles, manors, 
lordships, &c. during the minority of the heir, saving reasonable 
dower for Anne, the widow of the deceased, and the rights of ail 
other persons, &c. 8ic« (Exemplified by letters patent dated at 
Westminster 5 Mar. anno 51 Edw. III.) 

This minor heir died in his minority and in ward to the King 
in 18 Rie. II. and without issue, By his death ail issue from 
his great-grandfather became extinct, and after long discussion 
Reginald Grey, Lord Grey de Ruthin, was found to be his next 
heir, viz. son of Reginald son of Roger Lord Grey de Ruthin, 
by Elizabeth his wife, sister of John de Hastings, Lord Berga- 
venny, great->grandfather of the said deceased. Now, according 
to the ordinary rule of descent of titles of honour, Reginald 
Lord Grey became entitled not only to the Barony of Hastings, 
but to that of Bergavenny, and also to the Earldom of Pem- 
broke ; but he appears to hâve been only permitted to enjoy the 
first. ^ The entail made by the will of the deceased's father, as 
far as it related to the Barony of Bergavenny, was suffered to 
take efFect) and the said William Beauchamp was summoned to 
Parliament by the title of William Beauchamp de Bergavenny, 
which title still continues in his posterity. But the Earldom of 
Pembroke was retained by the Crown until the second year of 
the reign of King Henry the Fifth, when the King conferred it 
upon his younger brother Prince Humfrey,^ afterwards Duke of

of Grey of Ruthyn, and Hastings, and his case was bronght nnder consideratioB 
of the Honse of Lords, when, after a référence to the Judges, his daim to that of 
Hastings was rejected, whilst that of Grey of Ruthyn was allowed. At that period 
the représentation of Sir Edward Hastings was vested in coheirs whose rights were 
then evidently protected by the House. (See CoUins* Précédents on Baronies by

The Barony of Hastings was an appendage to the Earldom of 
Kichmond when that Earldom was enjoyed by the Dukes of 
Brittany, and,with the Earldom, wasgiven by King Eldward the 
Third to his younger son, John of Gaunt, by the description 
of the Honour and Râpe of Hastings, to him and the heirs of his 
body; and so descended and came to King Henry IV. who, in 
he fii*st year of his reign, gave the said Earldom, &c. to Ralph 
Earl of Westmorland for life, and afterwards, in his fourteenth 
year, granted to Sir John Pelham, knt. the manors of Crow- 
hurst, Burwash, and Bevylham, with their appurtenances, in the 
county of Susses, together with the râpe of Hastings in the said 
county, which then were parcel of the castle, honour, and lord- 
ship of Richmond, to hold, after the death of the said Earl of 
Westmorland, to him the said John Pelham and his heirs for 
ever. In virtue whereof the said John Pelham, after the death 
of the Earl of Westmorland (which happened anno 4 Edw. VL) 
was seised of the said râpe, &c. in his demesne as of fee, and 
gave the same to his son John and his heirs and assigns for ever; 
who being seised thereof, gave the same to Thomas Hoo, esq.,

second Baron, by his second wife Isabel le Despencer, each praying that the abey- 
ance mightbe determined respectively in their favour. On the 18th May 1641 (after 
a Résolution of the Honse of Lords that the said Barony was in abeyance) the Queea 
was plcased to détermine the same, by issning a writ of summons to Sir Jacob

The précise date of the conveyance from Pelham to Hoo, or

summons to be found for Pelham, but Hoo was regularly sum- 
moned to Parliament from 27 to 31 Hen. VL having been 
created Baron of Hoo, co. Bedford, and of Hastings, co. Sussex, 
to him and the heirs maie of his body. He died in the 33rd 
year of that reign, leaving four daughters his coheirs, as will 
appear under Welles.

Tregoz. — Vol. I. p. 616. 

I think there are two Baronies. Of the first there can be no 
doubt, provided two writs, or rather three writs in twoyears, 
should be deemed sufficient to create a Barony ; for it appears 
that John de Tregoz, who was summoned to Parliament twice 
in 25 Edw. I. and once in 27 Edw. I. died in the 29th year oF 
the same reign, leaving John Le Warre, son of Claricia his 
eldest daughter by Roger Le Warre her husband, and Sybill 
wifeof William de Grandison, his other daughter, his two co- 
heirs^ between whom the said Barony fell into abeyance» P and 
so remains. 

But besides the above John Tregoz there was also one Henry 
Tregoz, who was summoned to Parliament from 22 Edw. L to 
15 Edw. IL and a Thomas Tregoz, summoned once in the 
reign of Edw. IL viz. anno 11, and four times in the reign of 
Edw. III. viz. in 6, 7, 8, and 9th. 

How Henry was related to John, or how Thomas was related 
to either, I hâve not yet (1807) been able to ascertain. I find 
a Henry de Tregoz named at the head of twelve knights, who 
made a perambulation of the forests of Sussex anno 9 Hen. III.^ 
and in 9 Edw. I. Henry de Tregoz was attached to answer Isa* 
bella de Mortimer;^ he was also living anno 16 Eklw. I. • and 
30 Edw. I. * 

In the Nomina Villarum of Sussex, anno 9 Edw. IL Thomas 
Tregoz owned the town of Preston near Ârundel, the town of 
Bargam, of Gretham, and of Garing (Goring). It seems that 
Goring was his (Henry 's) Barony, for in the Barons' Letter to 
the Pope he styles himself Tregoz Lord of Garynges.

Anno S Edw. III. Bogo de Knovill» son and heir of Bogo, 
held the manor of Mathern in Wales of the King in capite, as of 
the honour of Strigoyle, formerly belonging to Roger Bygod, 
Earl Marshal» then in the King*s hands» by the service of one 
knight's fee.>^ 

Bogo the third was summoned to Parliament, anno 1 Edw. IL 
SeeDugdale's Summonses, though in his Baronage he saysother- 


I. 29. ofter ^^ Bevis," addy and sometimes Hugo. 

1. 42, after " Wilts,** adrf, hy way qfnote : It appears 

by the book of knights' fées, called Kirkby's Inquest^^* made 
anno 24 Edw. I. that Bogo de Knovill, by Alianor his wife, 
and Robert de Bray, by Maud his wife, held the manor of 
Blancminster, co. Salop, of Earl Warren, which the Earl held 
of the King as a member of his Barony ; and in the famous 
Letter of the Barons of England to the Pope, anno 28 Edw. I.P 
be is styled ^* Bogo de Knovill Dns de Albomonasterio," and 
the impression of his seal is three mullets of six points pierced, 
surmounted of a label. 

It seems by this that the reason of summoning him to Parlia- 
ment was his tenure of Blancminster. If so, and that he left no 
issue by the said Alianor his wife (as I suspect) we shall come at 
the reason why none of his posterity were summoned after him. 
There is, to be sure, one solitary writ in 1 Edw. II., but as this' 
was the year immediaiely after his death, it is probable that it; 
was issued by mistake ; his death might not be known when the 
writ was made out, or it might not be known that his son was 
by a former wife.

surviving, and a son John, who was his heir, twenty-three years 
old, and married. His lands were in Cambridgeshire, Wilt- 
shire, and Gloucestershire. 4

Hilton. — Vol. II. p. 6. 
(Addendum to the Article printed in Val. VIL p. 67.) 

In another part of Mr. Townsend's MSS. occurs the original 
article of which that printed seems to hâve been a fair and 
abbreviated statement : a note, however, which appears in the 
former, inay as well be considered in connexion with that 

At page 67, Katharine Pedwardyn is stated to hâve married 
first Nicholas Dene^ of Barrowby^ co. Linc. &c. and in a note 
Mr. Townsend says, " I am not quite certain whether Katha- 
rine, who married Dene, was one of the daughters of thîs Walter 
Pedwardyn or of another Walter his uncle, as in B. 2,' there- 
fbre examine it more closely. In either case she would convey 
aU the quarterings which I hâve from that statement ascribed to 
Lady Temple ; but if she were not sister of Ann Quickerell she 
cannot convey any interest in the Barony." 

Alexander de Hilton, whom Dugdale mentions as having been 
summoned to Parliament in the 6 and 9 Edw. III. married 
Maud, one of the daughters and coheirs of Richard de Emeldon, 
and widow of Richard de Acton, by whom he had issue one 
daughter and heir, Elizabeth, who married Roger Woder- 
ington, or Widrington, and died in the lifetime of her mother, 
leaving, besides other children, John her son and heir, whose 
maie line continued in uninterrupted succession to the death of 
the last Lord Widrington in 1774, who dying without issue, his 
nephew Thomas Eyre, of Hassop, Esq. son of his sister Mary, 
became his heir. But this gentleman dying also issueless, the 
inheritance passed to the late Charles Towneley, of Towneley, 
Esq. in right of his grandmother Mary Widrington, who was 
aunt of the last Lord and of the said Mary Eyre, and by his 
death unmarried in 1807, his only sister Cecilia, if she be living, 
or if dead the heir gênerai of her body is now heir of this Barony 
of Hilton. 

The said Cecilia Towneley married first to Charles Strickland, 
of Sisergh, Esq. and after his death to his cousin-german Jar- 
rard Strickland, Esq. and had issue by both.

Playz.— Vol. II. p. 9. 

The Barony of Playz, involving a moiety of the Barony of 
Montfichet, passed to Margaret, sole daughter and heir of John 
Playz, Chevr. who died anno 12 Rie. II. (at which lime she was 
22 years old) and the wife of Sir John Howard, Knt. Her issue 
was one son John and one daughter. The daughter took the 
veil. The son, called Sir John Howard the younger, died in 
the lifetime of his father, leaving only a daughter his heir, named 
Elizabeth, wife of John de Vere, Earl of Oxford ;<l into whose 
famiiy she carried, as heir of her grandmother, this Barony of 
Playz, with a moiety of that of Montfichet, and as heir of her 
great-grandmother Margaret Scales, wife of Sir Robert Howard, 
a moiety of the Barony of Scales : ail which, upon the death of 
her grandson John Earl of Oxford in the iSth Henry VIII. fell 
into abeyance along with the other Baronies that were separated 
from the Earldom by that event.

and heir of Robert Fitzgerald, and Alicia de Rumelli, which 
Amicia, after his father's death, becaroe wife of John Tr^oz. 

1. 60. This Sir John Leyburne was the son of Simon 

de Leyburne, knt. and was fourteen years old at the death of 
his father in 2 Edw. II. ; « and it appears by the inquisition 
taken on that occasion, that his father and himself held jointly 
the manor of Berewick in the county of Salop, with remainder 

^ Efc. 16 Hen. VI. no. 36. • Esch. anno 2 Edw. II, no. 24, Salop. 


in case of John's death without issue to his sister Maud and her 
heirs. Of this Maud I find no further mention ; but in seve~ 
rai pedigrees drawn up from records in the time of King James 
the First, by Nicholas Charles, Lancaster Herald, and Augustin 
Vincent, Windsor,^ it appears that Katharine, wbo is called the 
daughter of Simon, and the sister and heir of John de Leybume, 
was the wife of Geoffrey de Luçy, wbo was summoned to Par- 
liament anno 25 Edw. I. 

P. 15, 1. 49, add. This Beatrix was the widow of Peter Cor- 
bet. Lord of Caus ; and the lands hère mentioned were part of 
the said Peter's inheritance, as one of the heirs of the ancient 
Barony of Valletort, which lands were thus, by the fine above- 
mentioned, diverted out of the line of descent by which they had 
passed to him, and conveyed to a family that had no connexion 
in blood with the original possessors. 

Latimer. — Vol. II. p. 30. 

The lands were settled so as that upon the death of the widow 
of John Nevill, Lord Latimer, they should pass to his maie ne- 
pbew of the half blood in préférence to the nephew of the whole 
blood by his sister, and this nephew of the half blood was sum* 
moned to Parliament many years before the lands came into his 
possession by the title of Latimer ; but neither he nor any of his 
descendants who inherited his title ever enjoyed the precedence 
of the ancient Barony, but took rank accbrding to the date of 
hisfirst writ of summons (which I think was 10 Hen. VI.); yet 
when the heir of the whole blood claimed temp. Hen. VII. he 
did not succeed in recovering the old Barony of Latimer, but he

Badlesmere.* — Vol. II. p. 57. 

I do not find that Clare Steward of Essex, whose heir mar- 
ried to Badlesmeref was ever summoned to Parliament. 

FiTZBERNARD, through whom Badlesmere inherited^ was aunt 
of the person first summoned, and so Badlesmere could not be 
heir of that Barony. 

Dugdale does not include Fitzbernard in his Baronage, 
though he gives writs for him from 6 to 15 Edw. IL inclusive. 
I shall therefore introduce him between Northwode and 
Charlbton, Vol. II. 70-71. 

See vol. V. p. 160. 

• Mr. Townsend bad evidently prepared a fall account of the state of 
the Barony of Badlbsmerb, and this is one amongst other instances of 
the loas of his manoscript, or its séparation from the gênerai collections. 

Mr. Francis Townsend, j on. printed in the year 1822 a prospectus 
of an intended publication on Baronies by Writ, wherein an account 
of the Baronies of Badlbsuerb and Beaumont were given as spéci- 
mens of the work, and compiled from his father's collections. 

From the article " Badlbsmebe '* ît appears that the Barony was 
then (1822) in abeyance amongst the coheirs of Giles last Lord Badles- 
merCy viz.—

70 years of âge had a grant from the King dispensiDg with his 
attendance in Parliament or Council, and exonerating him from 
ail offices, &c. durante vitâ auâi " and his son Bartholomew was 
immediately called to Parliament, and afterwards regularly sum- 
moned. He died in the lOth Hen. IV. 

Baront of Powys. — Vol. II. p. 283. 

Powis was a Lordship by tenure. 

Meredith, who was Prince of ail Powis Land, as it was called 
in the reigns of William I. and IL, divided the lordship into 
two parts, viz. Powis- Wenuwen and Powis-vadoc, or Madoc, 
and gave the former to his son Griffin^ the latter to his son 

Griffin's inheritance descended entire with the title of Prince 
of Powis to Owen ap Griffin, who lived in the time of King 
Edward L This Owen surrendered to the said King Edward in 
the Parliament at Shrewsbury ail his lands, and received them 
again " sub nomine et tenura liberi Baronagii Angliœ, resignan- 
do Dno Régi heredib3 suis et Coronœ AnglisB nomen et drculum 

In Kynaston's case as reported in Collins [Baroniea by Wriij 
p. 397, 398), it is said that Edward Charlton Lord Powis died 
anno 9 Hen. V. leaving two daughters his coheirs, viz. — 

*' Joan, 21 years old, who roarried Sir John Grey, and 

'^ Joice, 18 years old, who married John Lord Tiptoft, where- 
by the Barony of Powis was in abeyance, and so continued tili 
the attainder of John Earl of Worcester, son and heir of said 
Joice, in 1470." 

But I oonceive that John Earl of Worcester never was legaUy 
attainted. It is true he was tried, condemned, and beheaded : 
but the power under which he sufFered was temporary and 
usurpedf and though set down as happening in the tenth year of 
King Edward IV. it is certain that his crime was that of bearing 
arnîs in defence of that monarch's right to the Crown. The fact 

• Pit. 1 Hen. IV. p. 5. m. 6. 


is, that in 1470 Henry the Sixth, having brought over the Earl 
of Warwick to fais party, grew so powerful tbat Edward was 
compelled to quit the kingdom, and Henry was proclaimed King 
and remounted the throne. During this period the trial and 
exécution of Tiptoft took place : but the battle of Bamet, 14th 
April 1471, restored Edward, and consequently rendered ail the 
Jntermediate acts illégal. — Admit that Tiptoft's attainder was 
legalj yet bis son was restored long before Grey was summoned ; 
so that this restoration tbrew the Barony again into abeyance 
even if the attainder had taken it out. — Grey was not summoned 
by the title of Powis till 22 Edw. IV. and Tiptoft's son never 
lived to corne of âge, as he died a minor, anno 3 Rie. III. 

In truth I see no reason to believe that the Barony was at ail 
affected by the attainder. In 27 Hen. VI. John Tiptoft is called 
Lord Powis in three records. The case in CoUins states, that 
Richard Grey, Lord Powis^ by a deed dated 1465, granted, &c. 
(five years before the attainder) ; that said Richard died anno 
1466, and that bis son John Grey, Lord Powis, by a deed 
1483, Sic. 

In fact both Tiptoft and Grey used tlie tide of Lord Powis 
at the same time.

The Abbot of Leicester never held any lands or tenements of 
the King per Baroniam seu alio modo per quod ad Parliamenta 
seu Consilia Régis venire teneatur. 

But in anno 49 Hen. IIL ail the Abbots and Priors in the 

* Patent, azrno 26 Edw. III. pt. 1. m. 23. 


kingdom voluniarie sumnumUi/ïierunti and the Abbot of Leices- 
ter amongst the rest. 

In the reign of Edward the First, upon the death of William 
the Abbot of Leicester, the King's E^haetor, Malcolm de Har- 
legh, upon pretence tliat the said Abbot held his abbey by 
Barony, or by part of a Barony, took apa^ey and a cup to the 
King^s use from the suoeeeding Abbot. 

TÏie Abbot complained to the King, asserting that his Abbey 
was not held of the King either by Barony or by part of a 
Barony, and desired to hâve justice. 

The King ordered the Treasurer and Barons of the Exche- 
quer to search the Rolls, and they certified that they did notfind 
that the said Abbot or any of his predecessors held any thing 
of the King by Barony, or part of Barony^ for which they owed 
him service. 

The King therefore grants to the Abbot that the caption of 
the palfi-ey and cup shall not be drawn into précèdent in future 
to the préjudice of the Abbot, but that they shall be free from 
similar prestaHonM in future. Teste R. apud Westm. 12 Nov. 
anno 80 Edw. I. b 

The question, however, does not appear to bave been effectually 
quieted by the preceding patent of King Edward the First, for 
in anno 26 Edw. III. the Abbot represented to the King that his 
abbey had been founded by Robert, son of Robert de Melan, 
fonnerly E2arl of Leicester» in pure and perpétuai alms; that the 
advowson and patronage thereof came into the hands of King 
Henry the Third by forfeiture of Simon de Montfort, then Earl 
of Leioester, the patron ; that the Abbot hdd nothing of the 
King, either by Barony or otherwise, whereby he was bound to 
come to the King's Parliaments or Councils, nor did any of his 
predecessors before the 49th Henry III. after the forfeiture of 
the said Simon ; in which year ail Abbots and Priors through- 
out the kingdom, *^ ad parliamentum ejusdem proavi nri tune 
tentum voluntarie summoniti fuerunt," and the Abbot of Lei- 
oester with the rest. The King being willing to exonerate the 
Abbot from the said attendance in Parliament, and because upon 
view of the charters and confirmations of the lands of said Abbey 
it appeared that the Abbey was so founded by said Robert Fitz 

^ Rot. PAt. 30 Edw. I. m. 1. 



Robert, then Earl of Leicester, in pure alms, and that there was 
nothing to be found in the Rolls to shew that the said Abbot held 
any lands of the King by Barony or other service (^< seu aliquo 
aho semckr)^ nor that his predecessors had ever been sum- 
moned before 49 Hen. IIL and not regularly but only at sun- 
dry times since that period. 

With the présent articles the Additions and Corrections for Dng« 
dale's Baronage, eztracted from the MSS. of Francis Townsend, Esq. 
Windsor Herald^ will conclnde. The contribniâons in the présent and 
preceding yolnmes may be said to contain nearly ail the articles which 
appear to hâve been fînished and intended for a new édition of that 
work at the time of Mr« Townsend's death. It mnst not> however^ be 
snpposed that any thing like the whole collections hâve been printed, 
since the four volumes contain a variety of nndigested notes and mate- 
riais. Thèse consist principally of numerons pedigrees illastrative of 
Baronial descents, together with a variety of extracts from the Patent, 
Close, Fine, and Liberate Rolls. It is clear, that a large portion of Mr* 
Townsend's collections hâve unfortanately been lost or dispersed, and 
many of his notes indicate that he had freqaently made his corrections 
and additions in his own copies of Dugdale, one of which is in the 
Library of the Collège, or in other printed works.

This Church, dedicated to Su Mary, consists of a Nave and 
Ciiancel, with a modem brick Tower, having small pinnacles at 
the angles surmounted by balls and vanes. 

Chancel. — The east window is pointed, of five trefolled Hghts, 
witli a decorated heading of numerous quatrefoils, in flowing 
tracery of about the date of the latter part of Edward tlie 
Secondes reign. It is fiiled with stained glass of a rich cha- 
racter. In the uppermost quatrefoil is a very small shield, bear^ 
ing Sable, a lion passant between six cross-crossiets argent. In 
the two next are, 1. Azuré, a cvobh flory between four mardets

3. England. 4. Checky, or and azuré, Jfarren.^ In the middle 
light are three mutilated figures, apparently the Saviour between 
Su Peter and St. Paul. 

On the north side are three pointed-arched. Windows. One is 
of two trefoiled lights with a trefbiled heading, and having some 
vestiges of stained glass, with devices of roses, && The other 
two are of two trefoiled lights each, with plain round unfoliated 
headings. ^Iliat to the west has some remains of stained glass. 

On the south side is a large window of two cinquefbiled lights

Windows similar to those on the north side. On the right of ilie 
e&st window is a bel met. There is a plaiii pointed-arched niche 
in the north wall near the east window. Under the niost eastern 
of the Windows on the north side, and within the rails of the 
communion table, is a plain monumental slab under a low ob- 
tuse arch. 

Un a slab, within the communion rails, is a brass with the 
figures of a man and his wife, and the following inscription: 

^* Hère under this stoue lyeth buryed the bodye of John 
LiGUK, c Ësquyer, who decessyd the 19 daye of Januarie, Âniio 
Domini lôTô/' 

Also a shield bearing Quarterly, 1. A cross engrailed within 
a bordure, for Leigh. 2. A roundei between three crowns, 
two and one, ail within a bordure. 3. A cross flory. 4. Two 
bars, a chief ermine. 5. A chevron between three eagle's heads 
erased. 6. On a bend engrailed, an annulet for différence. Cale*

* Thii John r«ighe» or Leigh, was son of Ralph Leigh, who was grandson of 
Ralph Leigh, of Stockwell, co. Sarrey, who was grandion of John Leigh, of Ridge, 
oo. Chester. He married Margaret, daughter of Thomas Saunders, of Uxbridge, 
and his widow remarried Sir M'iUiam KiUîgraw» of Corn wall. Their son, Sir John 
Leigh, il described as of Cddrey, Knt. He is stated hj Vincent io hâve married 
Elisabeth, daoghter and coheir of Sir Tliomas West, of Testwood, Knt. second son 
of Lord LaWarre, and his posterity were of Coldrey. It does not appear that 
there was any Sir Thomas West, a yonnger son of a Lord LaWarre, who left 
isane. Bnt Colline, with the errors of Seltwood instead of Testwood, and Cowdray 
instead of Coldrey. gives the match, describing Sir Thomas West as a yonnger son 
of Sir George West. The Visitation of Hante, Harl. MSS. No. 1544, f. 165, gives 
the pedigree of Leigh, together with a shield of twenty-four quarterings ; bnt, with 
the exception of the coat of Colepeper, they are différent from those on the brass 
pute. John Leigh is described in the Visitation as having been boried in the 
chnrch at Froyle. His grandmother was Joan or Jocosa, danghter and coheir of 
Richard Colepeper, and remarried to Lord Edmnnd Howard, by whom she was 
mother of Qneen Katherine Howard. See Vincent, 139. 

Richard Colepeper married Jocosa, danghter and heir of Ottiwell Worsley, Lieu- 
tenant of the Castle at Calais. 

This was a raised tomb in the middie of the chancel, but remoTcd in 1811. 

Sir John Leigh, of Stockwell, purchased the manor (which had belonged to the 
Abbey of Wa?erley) in 1557, and from the date on the chimneys at Coldrey, vis. 
1588, probably built the house at that tirae. It is stated to hâve been afterwards 
aold to Sir Humphry May, Knt. who died June 9, 1630.

The Chancel is separated from the Nave by a pointed arch 
resting on small circular columns with plain capitals. The Nave 
is lighted by ten double windows, five on either side, ail modem

trefoil on eitlier sîde filliiig up the vacancy. There are vestiges 
of stained glass. It is probably of about the date of the ISth 
century. The north side is lighted by two Windows; one a 
small lancet; the other a narrow circular-arched window with a 
fine bold double border of zig-zag mouldings. The south side 
has a similar window with zig-zag mouldings, and another of two 
cinqueibil-headed lights. 

The Chance! is separated from the Nave by a beautiful circu- 
lar arch resting on double circular columns having very rich 
foliated capitals. The inner moulding of the arch is a sort of 
nebuly pattern of much taste and effect ; something similar to 
the crimping of a cap. The side towards the Nave exhibits a 
fine spécimen of the zig-zag and dancette moulding. On the 
north side, are the remains of the steps conducting to the rood 
loft, and close by is a square opening communicating with the 
Nave. On the south side is a smaller oblong opening. The rails, 
inclosing the communion table, are of carved oak, of about the 
time of Elizabeth or James, as is also the table itself. 

The following slabs are within the communion rails : 

1. On a blue slab, in brass: 

** Hère lyeth the body of Franges Kudyerd, wife to Benja* 
min Kudyerd, ^ of Winchfield, Esq. the daughter of Sir Francis 
Gamul, Knt. and Baronet, of Chester, and Christiana his wife 
who was y« daughter of S>^ Richard Grosvenour, Knt. and 
Baronet, of Eton, in y« county of Chester, aged 27, and had 
issue six children, whereof now are living two sonnes and one 
daughter, the other three are dead before their mother. She 
depnrted this life the 16th of August 1652.'*

^ Ormerod (H Ut. of Chesb. toI. ili. p. 250) states, that she re-married Sir Ben- 
jamin Rndjerd. This ia an error. The blaion of the ooat of Gamul is Or, three 
mallets, two and one, sable. Sir Francis Gamul was a distingnished personage on 
the side of Charles during the Civil Wars, and was Go?ernor of Chester. The 
Baronetage is doubtful. 



*< Hère lies a jewell of unvalewed prioe, 
Her father wore faer at his heart, 
Transplanted to the eternall colonies 
Where better set she shines her part." 
Above is à shield, bearing Rudyerd, impaling Gamul. Below

aged 27. Bkidgit, who died May 16, 1752, aged SI." 

The North Transept is separated from the Nave by a plain 
circular arch. 

The north side has a square window of two lights. 
On tlie floor are the following inscribed slabs : 

1 . On brass, but half concealed by a pew.

- * Laurence Radjerd, who married EUzabeth NichoUs, waa the eider aon of 
Jamea Rudyerd by Margaret or Margery, danghter of Laurence Kidwelly. In the 
Vieitation of Hauts (Harl. MSS. 1544,) both James Rudyerd and Laurence Kid- 
welly are described as of Hartley, in Hauts. In C. 94. f. 481. Coll. Arm. the 
latter is described as of Winchfield. 

James Rudyerd appears to hâve been the third son of Ralph Rudyerd, of Rud- 
yerd, co. Stafford, and Laurence Kidwelly was of Welsh extraction, being grand- 
son of Michael Kidwelly, of Hauts, by Margaret, danghter of John Fauntleroy, of 
Dorsetshire, and great-grandson of Sir Morgan Kidwelly, and described (Uarl. 
MSS. 1544.) as grandson of Michael Kidwelly, of Hsrtley (son of Sir Morgan 
Kidwelly) by Margaret, danghter of John Fauntleroy of Dorsetshire. 

Laurence Rudyerd aboyementioned was the elder brother of Sir Benjamin Rud- 
yerd, Knt. of whom a memoir bas recently been published by James Alexander 
Mauning, Esq. of the Inner Temple. Mr. Manning sUtes that, " of Laurence and 
John, the elder brothers of Benjamin," i. e. Sir Benjamin, " Httle can be ascer- 
tained beyond their matriculation as members of St. John's Collège.'* and that 
" James,*' a younger brother, " sucoeeded, by the will ofhis grandfather Kidwelly, 
to the estate of Winchfield." A référence to the pedigree in the Muséum, not to 
mention those at the Collège of Arms, which carry the descente so low as 1686, 
would bave shown that Laurence was seated at Winchfield, and that his younger 
brother James was of London, and married to Mary, the danghter of William Dale, 
of London, by whom he left issue, and that neither he nor they were ever of Winch- 
field. Laurence left three sons, Laurence, James, and Benjamin, who suoceeded 
one another, the two former dying without issue. See in Cole's Eseh. in Inq. p. 
m. lOth and 15th of Charles. The property of the Rudyerd family is now pos- 
sessed by Lord Amelius Beauclerk. See also anote in the Topographer, vol. ir. p. 3. 

*> Margaret, danghter of Bainbridge. She was aunt to the late Mr. 

Bainbridge, to whom she left the Winchfield estate, and where he resided tiU his

Tbe poiuted arch on the right (or south side) of the division 
between the Nave and Chancel, seems to be of récent origin, 
and to hâve been made to admit a pew, 

The Font is near the entrance to the chancel. It is octagonal, 
with a low double circular-arched moulding on each face, and 
rests on a square biock of brick work. It is much disfigured 
by whitewash, and is of the âge and style of that at Bentley. 

The Pulpit has some good oak paneling, coeval with the 
communion rails. 

The South Porch, very improperly converted into a pew by 
the late Mr. Bainbridge (as I am informed) and tbe Rural Dean, 
basa window of one trefoiled light on either side. The window 
where the door was is modem, and, as might be expected, 
in the worst taste. 

The Nave b only lighted on the south side, and has two Win- 
dows. The first is of two trefoiled lights, with a mar}'gold head- 
ing of seven compartments. The other is of two trefoiled lights 
with a square heading, Â very rich Norman arch, resting on 
circular columns with foliated and fanwork capitals, séparâtes the 
nave from the tower at the west end. Both sides are nearly 
similar, but the central banding on the west side is foliated. 

ExT£RiOR. — At the west eiid is a square Tower ; the upper 
part of brick, and perhaps about a century old; the lower part 
of rubble and rough cast, and having a small circular-arched light 
on the north, south, and west sides. The western doorway 
(which is now, in conséquence of the closing up of the south 
porch^ the only entrance) has a very fine Norman arch of rich 
zigzag and indented mouldings, similar in style to the arches of 
the interior. The outer banding has a biileted cable moulding. 
On the north side is a pointed-nrched doorway to the Nave resting 
on small columns, the foliated capitals only of which remain. 

This Church is in a very secluded spot. The Nave, Chance!, 
and South Porch are tîled. 

There are three bells, one of which bears the date 1617. 

The Royal Arms are lying loose in the chancel. They are of 
the date 1710. 

The date of the earliest Register book b 1659, and it is nol in 
good préservation. No Benefactions are recorded. 



This Church, dedicated to AU Saints, consists of a Chance], 
Nave, and North and South Aisles, but which latter are divided 
off into North and South Chapels.

south, aisie by two pointed arches, resting on circular columns 
with plain capitals. It wouid appear to hâve been originally

pointed, of four lights, and of a plain churacter, the whole being 
witliout foliation.

circular, and with the following inscription carried round it, in 
bold relief, but much defaced by whitewash : ** Auxilium {mewn 
in Domino^ or est in Domino^ but this part is out of sight) qui 
fecit celû et Çrâ." — Taken from the 2nd verse of the 121st Psalm. 

On the floor is a brass of a man in a gown, but the inscrip- 
tion is gone, as are also the brasses of two other slabs. A plain 
slab commémorâtes James Gregory and Theophila his wife. 

Against the column, on the norch*east side of the entrance to 
the chancel is inscribed, 

James Vickbrs, ^ 

John Mapleton, ^ Churchwardens, 1702. 

Thomas Earl, ) 

The Pulpit is plain and modem, but in the tower is an ex- 
tremely good pulpit of carved oak, disfigured by white paint, 
which was removed, though fortunately preserved^ to give place 
to the présent inferior and tasteless substitute. 

The présent small Organ Gallery was not long since erected 
(viz. in 1836), as the inscription on a brass plate records, by 
voluntary subscriptiotis, the Rev. W. Harriott, A.M. Vicar. 
It must be admitted that the taste which promoted the érection 
of this gallery is very questionable, and the more so as, in order 
to effect the object, an old gallery of carved oak was, at the 
time, divided in half; one moiety being thrust back into the 
south and the other into the north aisle, and, which is more 
lamentable, half obscured by the long galleries of thèse two 
aisles, which intersect it on either side at right angles. The 
following inscription also, which is carved along the lower ledge, 
is partially concealed. The hidden letters, which were supplied 
to me by the attendant, are given in italics.

having been severed into two parts, on the north side, 

*< S2, Alexander Série gave al the Bale8t«r«, nU of weaUk^ 
but of good will, That others may do the lihe stilk" 

This gallery originaUy projected, it is said inoonveniently, in 
front of the tower. Its removal to a better position might bave 
been requisite, but its mutilation is an unpardonable exhibition 
of bad taste. 

NoRTH AiSLE.— Is lighted on the north side by two large 
pointed Windows of four lights each, having plain headings, with« 
out foliation. The west end bas also a pointed window of 
four lightcTof about the same date. 

On the floor are the foUowing slabs : 

1. << In memory of Eliz. Terbt, died May 6, 1825^ aged 84." 

2. *< Hère lyeth the body of Mary Winder, widow, died

S. *< HoNouR Smith, died June 10, 1741, aged 69. Also 
Jonathan Smith, died June 18, 1761, aged 89." 

Against the north wall is recorded on a board, that the ** ac- 
commodation was increased by galleries in 1886, giving 250 
additional sittings, in conséquence of a grant from the incorpo- 
rated Society for the Enlargement of Churches; 150 of the 
number being free, hi addition to 870 formerly provided, of 
which 366 were free.

South Aisle.^Is lighted by two large pomted Windows of 
four lights each, with plain headings, differing firom those on 
the north side, but without foliation. At the west end is a 
pointed window of ibur lights. 

Against the wall is a white slab :-*-^' Sacred to the memory of 
a faithful wife, an exemplary mother, and a devoted Christian, 
Henrietta Maria, wife of the late John Pinkerton, Esq. 
who departed this life at Brighton, Novemb. 11, 1816. This 


tablet is erected by her grateful and aiFectionately attached only 
surviving daughter. Âlso to the memory of a beloved sister, 
Mart Mar6£BY, daughter of the above, who departed this life 
at St. John's Wood, London, July 11, 1831/' 

On the floor : — *' Hère lyeth die body of Gideon Elliott, 
Esq. who departed this life January the 26th, 1753, aged 65 
years. Also, Hère lyeth the body of Anne^ wife of the above 
Gideon Elliott, who departed tliis life Novemb. the 3d, 1744, 
aged 63 years." 

On a brick: — " Hère lyeth the body of John Mapletoni 
dyed 14 June 1713." On another portion of brick, detached, 
is inscribed in similar letters, ** aged 3 years and 8 months." 
Thèse in ail probability formed one slab. 

On a mural monument of white marble : 

<* In memory of Mr. William Burgess, grocer, of this place, 
great-grandson of Thomas Burgess, Rector of Bighton, Hamp- 
shire, who departed this life April 3, 1787, aged 66. Also of 
Elisabeth, widow of the said William Burgess, who departed 
this life May 21, 1797, aged 67. Examples of piety, chaiîty« 
and parental duty, sacrificing their own comforts to their chil- 
dren's welfare. This monument is erected by their grateful and 
aifectionate sons, John Burgess, Esq. of Brook Farm, Hartford- 
bridge, Hampshire, and Thomas Burgess, Bishop of St. David's." 

On a another slab of white marble : 

** Sacred to the memory of Laura, wife of T. B. Bagshaw, 
and daughter of the Rev. R. Lyne, D.D. (fbrmerly Rector of 
St. Neot's, Huntingdon) who died March 2ôth, 1829, aged 63

4. Ditto in 1753, ditto ditto. 

5. Henry Knight made me, 1667. 

6. John Allden and James Raingen 
Churchwardens, William and Robert Cor, 1713. 

The sroall dock bell on the top of the tower bears the date 

ExTERiOR. — The north door of the aisle is in the perpendi- 
cular style, pointed and square-headed, with foliated spandrils. 
The porch is tiled, and the outer door pointed. There is a 
small pointed door to the north chapel. The south porch is 
tiled^ with a barge board. It is closed up, and the doorway is plain. 

The Tower is of brick, with an embattled parapet, and having 
ibur pinnacles, surmounted by balls and vanes. There is a cor- 
nice of stone, oniamented with grotesque heads and a smali 
shield. The brickwork is iinished oiF with pilasters, and on the 
north, west, and south sides is an oval window. There are two 
stone bands or tablets each enriched with heads. Above the 
basement, on the west side, is a window of two lights ; and the 
north-west porch, of more modem date still, partly obscures 
aaother pointed window of three ligbts. The greater part of 
this tower would seem to be of about the âge of that at Crondall. 

Against the south wall, near the east end, is a monumental 
inscription to Elizabbth Flory, fourth daughter of Richard 
and Mary of this parish, who dîed July 19, 1641, aged 16. 
Below are some verses erased as if by design. 

On the north side of the Chorch, and near the wall of the 
aisle, are the gravestones of two unfortunate French officers, who 
died in this town, which was one of the places selected, during 
the war, for those prisoners who were on Ûieir p€trale,

The Castle of Odiham, of which a short description^ accompanied hy 
a view^ is given by Gough^ was occupied in 1265 by the famoas Simon 
de Montfort and his Coantess. Her Household Roll, recently printed 
at the expense of Beriah Botfield, Esq. M.P., in conjnnction with two 
others, and edited by Mr. J. Hadson Tamer, is a cnrioas document. 
The trout in the Greywell stream close nnder the castle walls are nu- 
mérous and excellent, but it wonld appear that that fish was either not 
relished, or considered to be ont of season, for no sooner had the £arl 
arrived than he sent off to the Bishop of Winchester's ponds near 
Famham, (we présume the great ponds at Frensham some mîles off,) 
for a supply of fish. The Domina de Maule (p. 34) supposed by Mr. Bot- 
field to be the widow of Peter de Maule, was more probably the wife 
or vridow of Richard ]e Maie or Maule who held the manor of Odiham 
aboat that period. It was afterwards in the Stnrmys and Seymours. 
Queen Elizabeth was at Odiham on the 20th of Sept. 1591. Nichols^s

The following instrameuts record the testameotary disposai of the 
real and personal property of Sir William Bonville^ knight, who resided 
at Schete, now called Shute, \n the conoty of Deyon, in the 14th cen- 
tory. They not only exhibit some pecoliarities relating to the manners 
of that period, bat, as they convey mach ioformation respectiog various 
persons and estâtes^ will be fonnd to possess a considérable degree of 
iiiterest ; especially when compared with Dngdale and other genealo- 
gical and topographical writers, to whose statements they afford several 
important additions and corrections. 

Sir William Bonrille married first Margaret, danghter and coheir of 
Sir William Damarell, or De Albamarle, of the same county, and was 
grandfather of William Lord Bonville, K.6. who was beheaded on the 
18th Febniary, 1461, the day after the battle of St. Alban's. Cicely, the 
great-graDddaughter and heiress of this nobleman, became the wife of 
John Grey, afterwards Marqoess of Dorset, ancestor of the Lady Jane 
Grey, of the présent Earl of Stamford and Warrington, and of many other 
noble families. The second wife of Sir William Bonville was Alice, 
widow of Sir John Rodenay. She survived her husband sevetiteen years, 
and, dying in the year 1425, was buried in the chnrch of Neweuham 
abbey, in accordance with the last of the following documents. 

Of thèse deeds> the first three and the last are transcribed from an 
ancient cartnlary among the évidences relating to the manors of Uphay, 
Haccombfee. and Homfraville, in the coonty of Devon, forroerly in the 
possession of Lord Petre ; the fourth is abstracted from Bishop Staf- 
ford*s register among the archives of Exeter cathedral.

Stowe informa us, ■ that *^ next (to the Bridge house) was 
the Abbot of Battaile's Inn, betwixt the Bridge House and Bat- 
taile Bridge, likewise on the bank of the Thames ; the walks and 
gardens thereunto appertaining, on the other side of the way, be-^ 
fore the gâte of the said house, was called the Maze. There is 
now an inu called the Flower de luce, for that the sign is three 
flower de luces. Much other building of small tenements are 
thereon builded, replenished with strangers and other, for the 
moBt part poor people. 

*< Then is Battaile Bridge» so called of Battaile Abbey, for that 
it atandeth on the ground, and over a watercourse (flowing out 
of Thames) pertaining to that Abbey, and was therefore both 
builded and repaired by the Abbots of that house, as being hard 
adjoining to the Abbot's lodging." 

The Abbats of Battle must hâve acquired this property at an 
early period, for there is among the records of the Bridge House 
a convention made between Ralph Abbat of Battle of the one 
part, and Matthew Tony, citizen of London and warden of 

• Stowe's Snrrey» edit. 1633, p. 459. 


London Bridge^ with the consent of Ralph Halwy, tben Mayor^ 
and ail the Citizens of London of the other part, whkh bears 
date in June 1243, whereby the Abbot agreed to keep in repaîr 
whensoever necessary, the Watercourse {guiUra) which lies be* 
tween the land of the aforesaîd Abbot and Convent and the 
}and of the aforesaîd Bridge, and to bave ail their easements to 
the aforesaid watercourse, to embank, keep, repair and, if need 
be, renew as well in the land of the Bridge as of the said Abbot 
and Convent without impediment or complaint by the said 
keeper and his successors; and if, through négligence or defect 
in keeping the said watercourse, the said keeper or his succes- 
soi-s should in any way be damnified, the same should be 
referred to the view of six honest men of the neighbour- 
hood, elected on the one part and on the other. .And that 
the said keeper and his successors should repair their ditch 
which extends from the aforesaid watercourse to tlie king's 
highway whensoever necessary, without détriment or injury to 
the land of the said Abbot and Convent, so that nothing should 
be left or put in the said ditch by which the current of water 
should be impeded, or the said watercourse injured, or the use 
and enjoyment of the water for the benefît of the townsmen of 
Southwark in any way should be prejudiced; so that, if it should 
be done by the view of six honest men of that neighbourhood, 
it should be amended ; and if they did not amend it wrthin forty 
days, it should be lawful for said Abbot and Convent to do it, 
and to throw ail the soil on their own land ; but if any coutro- 
versy or différence on account of said watercourse or ditch should 
arise, it should be settled by six honest men of that neighbour-» 
hood to be elected on either side.

Ralph de Hibemia, Ralph Carbonel, Norman de Suthwerk,

loner, Godfrey de Cruce, and others.

To the Abbot of Battle and his successors in 1517, Peter Ma- 
ton of the parish of St. Olave, Southwark, by his wiil ^ gave his 
greatest brasse pot belonginge to his honse to remain in the Abr

bat's house. He gave to the Abbat and Convent 20>. to be equally 
divided amongst them, to pray for bis souI, and to the fraternity 
kept by ail the parish clerks in London to the honour of St. 
Nicholas, 20^. 

Robert le Vinor of Southwark also granted to the Abbey^ in 
the Sdrd Edward III. in pure and perpétuai ajms, a certain 
house situate in Southwark, between his own tenement and a 
tenement of the said Convent on the east» and abutting on one 
end thereof upon another tenement of the said Robert on the 
north and the tenement of the said Convent on the south, and 
which house measured 17 feet in length and 15 feetin breadth. 

Also one chamber measuring 20 feet in length and 15 feet in 
breadth, and which chamber was annexed to a chamber of the 
said Abbot and Convent called the Steward's Chamber, in 
Southwark, and stood next the ditch of the said Abbot and 
Convent on the north, and the garden of the said Robert le 
Vynor on the south, &c. ^

Roger and Dame Elizabetb, 17 May, 29tb Henry VHI. to bold 
to tbe 8d Sir Wi&m, bis hrs and assigns, to tbe only use of Sd Sir 
Wi9m Forman, bis brs and assigns for ever." By tbe oove- 
nant it appears that Bolton's lease was at 15/. 6s. SéL per annum. 
And it was agreed, tbat said Sir Roger and Dame Elizabetb, 
tbeir heirs and assigns, farroers and tenants tbere, sbould use

assigns, should hâve their walk about the banks of the said ponds 
and river, as well for fishiiigi fowling and viewing of the same 
as for casting the same. 

13 January, 36 Henry VIIL By deed poil of this date Sir 
William Forman, knt. citizen and alderroan of London, fcv 
certain considérations, granted and oonferredto William Laxton, 
citizen and alderman of London, and mayor of the said city. 
Sir Martin Bowes, citizen and grocer of London, John Stur» 

gion, citizen and haberdasher of London, Garrard, citizen 

and alderman of London, and others; the two water mills, 
wharfs, and hereditaments which he had purchased of Sir Roger 
Copley and Dame Elizabeth his wife ; to hold to said Sir Wil- 
liam Laxton, &c. and their heirs; to the use and behoof of said 
Sir William Laxton, &c. and their heirs for ever ; to the intent 
that they should receive the rents of said premises, and pay the 
same to the Wardens, Keepers, or Masters of London Bridge, 
for the support, maintenance, and réparation of the aforesaid 
bridge ; and that when ail said feoffees but four or three of them 
should be dead, then those four or three, at the request of the 
Bridge Masters, should convey the same premises to other 

The wateroourse, mentioned in the foregoing extracts, flowed 
down Mill Lane, so called from the Âbbat of Battle's mill, 
which stood at the edge of the river and over the stream, by 
which it was turned. A bridge crossed the stream at St. Olave's 
Street, serving to connect that street with the road to Bermond-* 
sey and Horsieydown, and it is still commemorated by the name 
of Battle Bridge. The stream is now arched over ail the way 
from the houses on the south side of Tooley Street to the 
Thames, and serves as a sewer. South ward, ho wever, from Tooley 
Street, at the back of the houses in the Maze, it is open. The 
whole of this property now belongs to the City of London, and 
on it stands the Borough Compter, (which is the prison of the 
Borough for the jurisdiction of the City of London,) Hay's 
Wharf and Beal's Wharf, with several houses on the north side 
of Tooley Street, extending from Hay's Lane to Mill Lane. 



From what has been said of the Âbbat of Battle having had 
a garden with walks called the Maze, it might be supposed that 
the estate now cailed the Manor of the Maze» reoeived its name 
from that circurastance ; but we find it by that name in private 
hands long before the Dissolution of the Monasteries^ 

In the first year of the reign of King Henry the Sixth (1422) 
Richard Wakehurst and Ilichard Ayland confimied to John 
Burcestre^ son of Sir William Burcestre, knt. the manor of 
Mase in the county of Surrey.® ^Hiis John Burcestre (or Bur- 
cettur) is mentîoned f by Stowe to hâve been buried at St Olave's 
in 1466. His will, still extant in the Prérogative Court of Can« 
terbury, is as follows : 

«* In the name of God, Amen. The xxvjû» day of October,

O. Ë. Li» 




JANUARY 1842. 

This Church conskts of a small tawer and spire, and a nave 
on the north side of the tower, ail recently erected» and of an 
aisle of older date upon the eastern side of the nare, and whicb 
with its contents will supply the subject of the présent paper. 

This aisle formed the eastern and principal part of a former 
building; biit the addition of a nave, and the substitution of the 
présent steeple for the old bell gable tower, hâve diminished the 
importance of the remainder. 

The Aisle is composed of two parts, each of whieh opens into 
the nare by a large modem arch. 

The northern part or Chantry is separated from the southem 
part or Chancel by a shrine, which, however, admits of a free 
passage between the two. 

The chancel is still used as siich by the parish, and the altar 
table occupies a bow at its eastern end. 

A part of the chantry is far oMer than the rest of the building. 
Its northern and eastern walls, as high as the window cills, are 
Early English of tbe style of the thirteemh century. The 
northern wall contains three very perfect Early English stone 
staUs, which it is unusual to iind in that position, The string- 
course above tbem is of the saroe date. 

The interior face of the wall above tbe strîng» and the whole 
exterior face from' the foundation, are in the late parpendicnlar 
style, and correspond with the carved date of 1538. A northern 
door with the window above it, and a large eastern window^ are 
also of that date. 

The whole of the chancel is evidently of the same date with 
the latter part of the chantry. It contains two Windows to the 
soutlv and a large bow or oriel window to the east^ intended for 
the altar. Between thèse Windows, in the south wall, are the 
larved canopies of some stone stalls, justemerging through the 

The aisle présents no monumental inscriptions, except over a 


few récent intruden ; but tbe sexton once passed a bar into a 
cavity under tbe chancel, wbich be supposed to be tbe vault of 
tbe founder. 

Tbe roof, now ceiled, probably was formerly of timber» it is 
flat and still covered outside witb lead. Tlie aide bas recently 
been floored witb paving bricks, and tbe floor is raised aboat 
four incbes above tbe original level. Tbe wbole interior of tbe 
édifice is neatly and creditably kept. 

Tlie wall and stalls of tbe cbantry are doubtless parts of tbe 
old cbapel, wbicb appears to bave been conrerted into a cburcb, 
08 was Kingston into a parisb, under tbe Babingtons in tbe six- 
teentb century. Befbre tbat period, tbe Babingtons buried 
either at tbe tben parisb cburcb of Ratcliife on Soar, or in tbe 
cburcb of tbeir principal seat of Detbick * in Asbover, or at tbeir 
still older seat of East Bridgeford. 

Tbe founder or re-builder of tbe aisle at Kingston in 1538 
was Sir Antbony Babington, of Detbkk and Kingston, Knt. 
He also built tbe tower, and tbe upper story of tbe nave of tbe 
cbapel of Detbick in 15S0 and 1532, originally founded by bis an- 
cestors, togetber witb a bandsome range of offices still standing 
near tbe mucb older vaults of bis bouse at Detbick. 

Tbe cbantry is separated from tbe cbancel by a stone sbrine 
of most elaborate workniansbip, wbicb we sball next attempt to 

Against tbe east wall are two balf columns, plaoed about two 
feet apart; and opposite to tbem, at a distance of about seven 
feet, are two wbole oolumns corresponding. Between tbese and 
tbe western side or wall of tbe nare a space of about tbree feet is 
left as a passage. Tbe four oolumns support a stone vault, rib- 
bed, fretted, and groined witb pendants, and forming a canopy 
sucb as commonly covers an effigy, but bere is intended for an- 
otber purpose. Tbe top of tbe canopy is flat and embattled, tbe 
spandrils and intennediate parts being ricbly carved in taber- 
nacle work witb tracery and escutcbeons. Upon tbe top is a 
large flat stone, set on edge, carved on botb sides witb arms, and 
reaching nearly to tbe ceiling. 

Tbe passage to tbe west of tbe sbrine is an arcbed doorway, 
tbe arch being embattled and surmounted by a large stone 

• 8«e notices of Dethick and AshoTcr in toL II. of the preient Work> pp. 94— 101. 


resembliiig that over the canopy. The whole work appear» 
originally ta bave been richly painted. 

The canopy is of a weight quîte disproportioned to its sup^ 
porters, even without the additional load of the stone above. It 
bas given way in ail directions, and is novir supported by an iron 
chain and two timber struts. The serious injury that it bas 
received is due, however, far more to its own instabilîty tha» 
to any other causes. 

The columns resemble in gênerai design, but surpass in rich- 
ness, the celebrated chimneys of Thornbury, executed a little 
earlier in the same reign. Their bases support at each angle, 
twelve in number, a baboon sejant, coUared and chained, the 
favourite animal of the family. That at the sou th-east corner 
is the only figure now perfect. 

The two western capitals are formed. by a moulding of gro* 
tesque Bacchanalian figures ofmen and women, each placed be- 
hind a ton and with their arms linked. Those upon the eastem 
capitals ave also placed behind tons, but are more sedate, and 
represent chiidren. The in tended rébus is ^* Babe-in-ton," 

Between the two eastern half columns is a représentation in 
bold alto-relievo of the Last Judgment. At the summit is a 
figure of God the Father, surrounded by the host of HeaveOi 
Below on bis right are soûls on their way to Heaven, and on 
the left are others trooping downward to Gehenna, represented 
by an enormous mouth. On each side of this pièce is a sort of 
carved truncheon, evidently intended to support a desk fbr a 
book of prayer. 

The lower part of this compartment contains two shields : 
The dexter, Sir Anthony Babington, A» ten torteaux, four, three, 
two, one, a label B.; impaling Catharine Fen*ers bis second 
wife, Vair, or and g. The sinister. Sir A. Babington impaling 
Joane Ormond, bis first wife, B. on a chief indented or a 
cross flory between two lioncels rampant. 

The arch of the canopy is worked into a deep moulding, broken 
by half-length figures of angels, each bearing an emblazoned 
shield upon bis breast. Those on the south bave been simply 
painted, and the arms are now entirely efiaced. Those on the 
north bave been, some of them, both carved and painted, and 
ai*e in somewhat better préservation. 


Commencing on the northern face at the western springing 
we bave 1» 2, 3, effaced. 

4. Babington impaling Dethick, A. a fess vair or and b. be- 
tween three water budgets sa. (Tlie fess is carved plain, evidently 
by mistake). 

Thomas Babington, ob. 1467, married Isabel, daughter and 
eobeir of Robert Dethick of Detbick, co. Derby. 

5. Babington impaling Ward, O. a fret S. 

Sir John Babington, ob. 1409, married Benedicta, daughter

15. Ferrers impaling Quinçy (for Ferrers). 

Ferrers married a coheir of Quinçy Earl of Winchester and 
assumed her coat. 

16. Ferrers impaling Marmion, Vair, a fess G. 
Marmion married Frevil, and Frevil married Ferrers. 
17 and 18. Defaced. 

19. Concealed. 

It is singular that from No. 4 to 16 the arms are carved and 
painted on the shields, while upon the other six, as upon ail the 
shields on the southern side, they are painted only, and the 
paint bas entirely peeled oiT. 


The ibur spandrils each oontain a large escutcheon. On tbe 
north side the shield to the east bears 

1. Babington impaling Satcbeyerell. « on a saltire B. iive

Thomas Babington, ob. 2L April 1560, married Catharine, 
daughter of Sir Henry Satcheverell, of Morley, co. Derby, Knt, 

The shield to the west, — 2 A. on a fess between 

three crescents O. three escallops 6. 

A coat for which this is possibly intended, and wbich, being 
quartered by Clifton, may bave been intended to represent his 
coat, is A. a fess between three escallops G. The coat of Ormond, 
as given hère and elsewhere, présents at least an equal dis- 
crepancy. * 

On die south side, the shield to the east is, — 3. Babington, 
with the label as usual, and with a crescent di£Perenoe in chief^ 
impaling Stanhope. 

John Babington married Saunchia, daughter and heiress of 
Sir Richard Stanhope of Rampton. 

John Babington is oommonly classed as the fourth son, and 
some pedigrees make him the eldest son by the second wifè ; but 
this will scarcely account for his constant use of the différence of 
a second son. 

Western shield, — 4. Babington with the label as usual, and a 
martlet in chief, impaling a shield diapered, 

This should by the différence be John Babington, but the 
impaiement is not his. 

Above the spandrils, and forming a moulding to the whole 
structure, is a row of men and women, half-length figures, placed 
each behind a ton. 

The stone that tops the whole shrine, being set on edge, bears 
on its north face a lai^e central shield iiow quite plain, and two 
smaller latéral shields in the same condition. 

Tlte south face is more highly charged. Upon ils upper 
part is a rose, canopied by a régal crown, and supported by a 
greyhound and dragon, for Henry VIH. Behind one supporter 
is the fleur de Ijrs, and behind the other the rose ; two ooramon 
régal omaments. 

• HallowM of Dethîck and Glapwell had a grant in 1711 of " B. on a fesi be- 
tween three crescenta a. three torteaux. (Lysoos.) 


Below is a large shîeld, now blank, but which doubtles8 bore 
the coat of Babîngton. Above is the crest, upon a wreath a 
wyvem's head, winged, and below, the Family cognizanoe» a 

The supporters are two baboons rampant, coUared and chained, 
each standing upon a ton, and over the head of each a scroU, 
probably of the motto which Sir Anthony is known to hâve 
used, << Foy est tout/' It is so canred at Dethick. 

Behind each supporter is a babe, grasping the anîmal's tiûl, 
and standing upon a ton. 

Thomas Babington, Sir Anthony 's father, seals in 1508 with 
the device of a baboon sitting upon a ton, and the ton is agun 
repeated by Sir Anthony upon the chapel roof at Dethick, as 
giving nourishment to a spreading vine^ an allusion probably to 
his numerous and wealthy fiimily* 

The supporters were used commonly by Sir Anthony, and 
probably by his father, sinœ they were used by and are carred 
upon the tomb of his younger brother Humphrey ; but his 
descendants of Rothley do not at présent employ them, although 
the rule established in such cases authorises them to do so. 

Tlie arch of the passage west of the shrine is plain. Upon 
the atone above it, on the north face, is a blank shield, probably 
of Babington impaling Stanhope. The crest and dexter sqp- 
porter are of Babington; the sinister supporter, a mastiff for 
Stanhope, whose collatéral descendants, the Eath of Chesterfield, 
still use that animal. 

On the south face is a blank shield, probably of Babington 
and Ferrers. The crest and dexter supporter of Babington ; the 
sinister supporter a unioom for Ferrers. The unicom was long 
an emblem of the house of Ferrers ; it was the crest of the Tam- 
worth and Baddesley branches, and was used also by the Ferrers^a 
of Herts, so late as 1694. Under the shield is a ton, with vine 
foliage issuing from either end. 

In the blocked-up window of the chantry are two stone shields. 
On the dexter, Babington impaling Ferrers: on the sinister, 
Babington impaling Ormond. 

In stone, in the tracery of the east window of the chantry, are 
two shields, dexter, Babington impaling Quinçy (for Ferrers) 
with a label, a différence used by Catharine Ferrers both hère 
and upon the great barn at Dethick, and also used oocasionally 


by her ancestors of Tamworlh ; and sinister, Babington impaling 
Alfreton (for Ormond) B. two chevrons O. 

Chaworth, after his marriage with tlie heiress of AUreton, 
comnionly used her ooat, ^' B. two chevrons O." and it seenis to 
hâve been in like manner occasionally used by Ormond, who 
married the heiress of Chaworth. 

lliese coats are repeated in the same tracery on the outside of 
the window. 

Round the arch leading into the.chancel oriel is a broad 
band of tracery, ' containing a central escutcheon under the 
crown of the arch and four others on each side of it. 

Commencing at the base on the north side the shields are, 

1. Pierrepoint, A. semée of cinquefoils, a lion rampant S. 
impaling Babington. 

Sir George Pierrepoint of Holm- Pierrepoint married Elisa- 
beth, eldest daughter of Sir Anthony Babington. 

2. Babington, with the label as usual, and a mullet in chiei^ 
impaling • • • • on a fess between three crescents three escallops, 
probably Bernard Babington, who married a daughter of Sir 
Gervase Clifton, of Clifton, whose quartering the impaled coat

Catharine Satcheverell* 4.. The same. 

5.. The central shield Babington impaling Ferrers. 

6. Babington, with the label as usual, and a crescent in chief 
impaling Stanhope. John Babington and Saunchia Stanhope.

8. Babington as No. 2, impaling blank. 

9. Markham B. out of a chief O.a demi lion rampant 
issuant G. Catharine, second daughter of Sir Anthony Babing- 
ton, married John, son and .heir of Sir John Markham of Go- 
thapn, co. Notts. 

Beyond the central escutcheon and just over the altar is 
carved the word " DEVS." 

The Exterior of the Aisie is in fair préservation. The south 
side présents nothing remarkable. 

On the eastem wall of the Chancel, over the oriel, are the 
arms of France and England, within a garter, ensigned with a 
royal crown, and supported by a greyhound and dragon for 
Henry VIII. 

At the angles are two shields supported each by an animal 


which appears to be a royal supporter. The sinister shield is 
broken away. On the dexter is the crowned fleur de lys. 

In the wall, on either side of the orlel, is a panel of arms in 
good préservation. The dexter con tains quarterly of four : 

l. Babington. 2. Dethick. S. Allestree. 4. Stafford of Graf- 
ton, O. a chevron G. a canton ermine. Geofiîrey Dethick, 25 
Edw. III. niarried Emma, daughter and heiress of Sir Thomas 
Stafford, of Grafton, Knt. 

On either side of the shield is an arming buckle. 

In a lower compartment is the crest twice repeated, and be- 
neath it the word Babtngton and two tons. 

The sinister panel is quarterly of six : 

1. Stanhope, Quarterly ermine and gules. 

2. Mallovel, three wild cats passant in pale. Elisabeth, 
daughter and heiress of Stephen Mallovel, married John.Scan- 
hope in 1373. 

S. Longvillers, S. a bend between six cross-crosslets A. Eliza-*

Robert Mallovel. 

4. Houghton, a cresoent between thpee saltires (engrailed) 

5. Strelley, Paly of six A. and sable. Richard Stanhope mar- 
ried Elizabeth, daughter and heir of John Strelley, in 1527.

On either side of the shield is an arming buckle ; below for* the 
crest, being that of Longvillers, a cross-crosslet, . and the word 

The arming buckle was not an unusual appendage. .Walter 
atte Lee, 14 Rie. II. so uses it. (Lansd. MS. 203, fo. 165.) 

On the eastem wall of the Chantry a compartment -over the 
window is defaced. The side panels remain perfect.

zance, supporters, and initiais^ as above. 

Upon another stone in the wall, A. B. Ano Dni 1538, B. F. 
the latter for Babington and Ferrers. 

This aisle appears to hâve been erected by Sir Anthony 
Babington after his second marriage, and six years before his 

The gênerai arrangement of the aisle, the subject of the alto- 
relievoi the remains of the desk, and the profusion of armoriai 
bearings, shew that the shrine was oonstructed for the perform- 
ance of masses or obits for the dead, and that it was intended as 
ihe future burying-place of the family. 

It is probable that it was actually used for this latter purpose 
only. The burial places of Sir Anthony's ancestors are well 
known, and some of their monuments renudn ; but no monu- 
ments hâve been discovered to Sir Anthony or his descendants 
of the line of Dethick and Kingston, a fact readily to be ac- 
counted for by the existence of a family vault hère. 

John Babington, who by his mam'age with the heiress of 
Stanhope had aoquired Rampton and a considérable property, 
seems to hâve borne a part in the structure with his father. His 
buildings still remaining in the occupation of his descendants 
the Eyres, at Rampton, shew a love of heraldic display, and 
resemble in détail of exécution those at Kingston. 

A brick gateway and wall bounding the churchyard still re- 
main at Rampton, although the house was pulled down two 
générations ago. The gâte bears Babington with the cresœnt 
impaling Stanhope, with a crest and supporters nearly effaced; 
also Babington impaling Ferrers in compliment to his father, 
and Stanhope impaling Strelley for the father and mother of 
his wife. 


The gênerai quarterings of Babington are also set up, and ihe 
"Ton " has not been forgotten. 

Hère also is the Crowned Rose. Sir Edward Stanhope, 
grandfather to Saunchia, having been a commander for Henry 
VII. at the battle of Stoke. 

The love of founding chapels was not peculiar to the Babing- 
tons of Sir Ânthony's génération. The family had founded, or 
were patrons or owners of Chantries at Flawforth, Chilwell, 
Dethick^ Ashover, Alfreton, Albury, and probably some other 
places, besides possessing down to the présent day at Rothley, 
one of the most spacious and perfect private chapels in the Eariy 
English style in the kingdom. 

The " fair house at Kingston/' mentioned by Thoroton, 
was dcstroyed before 1678. The garden wall, and a curious 
gateway opening into the churchyard, were standing until six or 
seven years ago. 

The Chapel at Dethick, founded in 1279 by the Dethicks, Sir 
Anthony's maternai ancestors, and which he almost entirely re- 
constructed, has recently been refitted with open sittings in ex- 
cellent taste. One of the old poppy heads, carved as a baboon, 
is still preserved. 

The Babingtons, whilst actually of Babington, probably bore 
simply " Argent, ten torteaux, 4, 3, 2, 1 ; " but so early as 
Edward I. they had added a ^< file or label of three points 
azurcy" and this was borne by ail the branches, excepting thnse 
of Devonshire and Oxfordshire, and is still in use. Being con- 
sidered not as a " différence," but as a " charge, " the différ- 
ences are placed, not upon, but in chief above it. 

The practice hère occasionally employed of making the hus- 
band impale both hb wife's coat separately, and those of the 
several matches of her family also separately, is not uncommon. 
At Wyverton the matches of Chaworth, including Babington, 
and at Tamworth those of Beaumont, including also Babington, 
are very numerous. An inipaled coat of the date of Henry VIII. 
is just as likely to be that of one of the wife's female ancestors, 
as of the wife herself. The practice was carried even further. 
For example : The heiress of Longvillers married Mallovel, the 
heiress of Mallovel married Stanhope, and the heiress of Stan- 
hope married Babington. At Dethtck Babington is made to 
impale Longvillers. 

G. T. C. 





In order that several mistakes committed by the kistoriana of Hert- 
fordabire may not be perpetuated in any subséquent work on that 
connty, the présent article^ in illustration of the pedigree of Gylle^ ha» 
been drawn up. 

In the succinct acconnt of Buckland^ co. Herts, by Channcy/ it îs 

stated^ " Afterwards the manor came to Home, &c. and in pro- 

cess of time it passed by that name to Richard Gill, who had issne 
John, who purchased the moiety of the manor of Widial, as I shewed 
there." Now John Gyll^ the father of this Richard^ booght the manor 
of Buckland of William Home, with houses, lands» &c. as is seen 
in his willb proved 8 Feb. 1499 ; for he remarks, '^ as in deeds thereof 
made more plainly it appeareth." And this is further shown by a deed 
of conveyapce^ in the <' Pedes finium Herts/' 1 Richard III. 1483, at 
the Chapter Home, Westminster, between John Gylle, of Buckland, 
and Johanna his wife, to Richard Gyll : there is a warranty in it by John 
Gyll and Johanna and the heirs of her body for the quiet enjoyment of 
the premises by the saîd Richard Gylle and the others against the Ab- 
bot of St. Peter*s, Westminster. Both Chauncy and Clutterbuck hâve 
the epitaphs of John and Joan Gyll at Buckland, inaccurately. The 
former bas misprinted their name Gyllam > and the date 1495 for 1499 : 
the latter c has misprinted the same date " 1489," and bas oroîtted the 
epitaph for Joan altogether. Thèse memorials exist on two slabs 
in the pavement of Buckland church, ncar the pnlpit ; one is perfect, 
contaîning figures in brass plate of a man, six sons, and five dangh- 
ters 3 with this inscription, *' Orate pro anima Johannis Gyll, qui obiit 
23** die Januarii anno d*ni Ml cccc» Ixxxxix®. cujus alkime propitîetor 
Deus, Amen.*' The other slab has the indentation only of a figure, and 
an inscription for Joan GiU, Hke the former, with blanks left for the 
dates. In his account of Wyddial,<^ situated two miles south of Buck- 
land, Channcy ® avers that it was seized into the King*s hands, after the 
décapitation of Sir Anthony Widville at Pontefract by Richard III. and 
that it remained seqnestered till Henry VIII. granted it to George 
Canon and John Gyll. Thiç was by purchase deeddated 15 Hen. VIII.

sented on tbc tombstone of John Gyll, who died 1^546. The hîstorians 
bave married the lady to her son George. 

Another error is, that Sir George Gyll, soa of John GyÛ, sold the 
intrimonial property to John Goulston soon after 1613 : but he lield 
the {iroperty outil bis démise, whicb took place 17 Nov. 1619, as is seen 
by the Inquis. post mortem of Sir George Gyil, enrolled 22 Jac. I. when 
it passed over to bis two sons John and George ; nor did tfaey alienate it 
to Mr. Gottlston tiU 1 Juoe 1 628, as is proved by the deed of con- 
veyance in tbe roUs of Common Pleas, Rc^l 6, 3 Charles I. ; wherein 
is recapitulated the deed of tbe grant of tbe advowson by Henry VIIL 
to their ancestor John. The name of Gotilston first appears on the 
Court Rolls, 14 October 6 Charles I. which corroborâtes the fact of 
aliénation to him. 

Opposite bis acconnt of Buntingford, Oiaancy bas given a view of 
Littlecowt, a mansion of the Turner family ; but it might also bave 
been stated that this property was long in tbe hands of the Gyll family, 
as John Gyll, Esq. who died 1600, in bis will' says he built the bouse* 
Mr. Edward Gyll resided tbere at bis death in 1616; after whicb the 
faoïily repaired to Bandons, in Anstey, two uiiles from Wyddial, which 
property also had been in the family for sorae time, purchased by John 
GyH of William Hawke, of Ely, co. Cambridge, in 27 Hen. VIII. g and 
ît desceoded by will to Margaret, wife of John Gyll, who died 1546. 
Bandons was not alienated tiU after the decékise of Edward Gyll^ 1643, 
who bequeathed it to bis children Edward, John, and George. 

The family came originally from Cambridgeshire. In tbe Rot. Hnn- 
dredonim h temp. Edw. I. Richard son of Gille holds a messuage under 
Richard de Freville, of Little Shclfoid, co. Cambridge (one of which 
family was the wife of George Gill in the reign of Edward VI.) ; and 
Walter and Batenan Gille are roentiooed under Foxton in the same roUs 
of Cambridgeshire. Maurice Gyll, who died 1448, was Vicar of Shudy 
Camps in that county ; and see also hereafter the will of Isabella Gyll, 
proved at Ely in 1485 ; and the will of John Gyll 1499« 

A branch of the family settled at Elthan, in Kent, from whom the 
Gills of Dartford were derived.

Anno 9 Edw. II. 1316. The King committed to Oliver de

the Révolution Parliament of 1688. Col. Babington was Go-* 
yernor of Berwick under Charles 11.^ but the family adhered to 
the Puritan side. His first wife Catbarine, was elder daughter of

of East Bridgeford to his brother Sir William, and served with 
Hen. V. in France. The sword and bow that he bare at Agin-

the Agincourt roll, but this does not prove that he was not pré- 
sent at the battle.

aiso purchased from Ferrers a moiety of the manor of Lea, 
which descended to Babington. Tbese lands became bis pro- 
perty upon the death of bis wife, who beld them as part of the

Thomas married Isabel» daughter and cobeir of Robert De- 
ihicky of Detliick in Ashorer, oo. Derby, Esq. The other co« 
heir married Pôle, of High Edge, or Heage, co. Derby, and had 
issue. « 

Pôle of Heage was a cadet of Radbom, and the third branch 
of the name. He bore A« a chevron between three crescents, 
and a canton G. The maie line of Heage failed in the seven- 
teenth ceutury (Lysons). 

Dethick. — The early pedigrees of Dethick do not accord ; 
but tbeir matches with heiresses appear to be r-^ 

Sir GeofFrey Dethick 1278, married Joan, daughter and co- 
beir of John Annesley, of Annesley, co. Derby. 

Sir Robert Dethick 1286, married Helen, daughter and heir 
of Whittington, of Whittington, co. Derby. 

Sir William Dethick, temp. Edw. IL married Eleanor, daugh- 
ter and heir of Allestree, of AUestree, co. Derby. 

Geofirey Dethick, 26 Edw. III. married Emma, daughter 
and heir of Sir Thomas Stafford, of Grafton, Knt. 

The Dethicks were of Dethick temp. Hen. IIL and the pos- 
session of Whittington is an évidence of that match. The 
family, however, rarely, if ever, quartered any coats exoept 
Allestree and StafFord, which were used by their descendants 
generally. In the old chapel window at Rothley, besides An- 
nesley, Whittington, Allestree, and Stafford, three other coats 
are marshalled, evidently by heraldic authority, after the usual 
quarterings of Dethick, viz. 6. A. a fess between three billets G. 
7. A griffin in chief and a lion rampant in base. 8. S. a lion 
rampant and chief G. They bave been observed nowhere else^ 
and the names of their owners are unknown.

Fitzherbert, ofNorbury, co. Derby» Esq. by Elisabeth, daughter 
and coheir of John Marshal, of Upton, co. Leicester; the brother 
of Ralph married Joane Babington, of Kiddington.* 

The effigies of Thomas and Editha are carved in alabaster 
upon a rich altar tomb in their chantry chapel at Ashover, and 
the decorated niches of the tomb are occupied by small figures 
of their children and near kin. Thomas is represented as a 
civilian. The inscription upon the margin of the tomb is nearly 
eSàceàf but the name of Fitzherbert may still be read. ^ 

Upon a flat stone, upon the south side of the tomb, was a 
brass plate, now fixed in the east wall ; upon it, ** Hère lyeth 
Thomas Babyngton of Dethick, Esquier, son of John, son and 
heire to Thomas Babyngton and Isabel his wife, daughter and 
heire to Robert Dethick, Esquier, which Thomas decessed the 
13*h day of Marche, *Auno Dni 1518. On wliose soûls Jhu hâve 
raercy. Amen."'^ 

Thomas Babington's will is dated Feb. 24, 1518, and was 
proved in London in the same year. He directs certain sums to 
be bestowed in educating poor schohirs, and desires that his wife's 
tomb be not broken on his acoount, but that he be laid by its 
side. This accounts for the separate inscription given above, 
and shews that Editha died before 1518.

with long combed hsir, a side pouch resembling an angler*8 basket, and a long 
gown, (Uarl. MS. 5805, p. 339) which appears to hâve been the dress of a Civilian 
of that day. Spelman says of such persons, ** Nobiles autem, qui non in armatâ

The impaleinent of Babington and Fitzherbert occurs upon 
the tower at Dethick, and iu many other places. 

The Babington chantry occupied the eastern bay of the south 
aisle, and enough of the wooden screen remains to shew that it 
resembled the Babington pew of about the same date in the 
north aisie at Rothley. Two wooden escutcheons remain, one 
Babington impaling Fit7«herbert, the other Babington impaling 
three fusils conjoined in (ess between two pair of gemelles. The 
latter impaiement appears aiso on the tower at Dethick. The 
coat probably belonged in some way to Fitzherbert. They had 
issue nine sons and six daughters.'

and Rothley, co. Leicester, and Yeaveley and Barrow, co. 
Derby, y after 1505. In 1509 he signed an indenture by anti- 
cipation of the preceptories of Yeaveley and Barrow. Sir John 
farmed the preceptory of Temple Bruer, and instituted a suit 
against Thomas de la Laund, for lands in Ashby. The suit he 
himself gained, in or afier 1522. 

In 1518 he was one of the executors of his father's will. 

At a Chapter at Clerkenwell in 1526, he was permitted to 
anticipate the revenues by three years, and he got a lease of the 
whole preceptory to his brother Humphrey and others. In 
1544, Henry VIII. granted this preceptory of Rothley to Ed- 
ward Cartwright, who conveyed it through Sir Ambrose Cave 
and others to Humphrey Babington. His effigy occupies a niche 
upon the south face of his father's tomb, robed in the garb of 
the order, with a two-handed sword over his right shoulder, and 
the cross of Malta upon his cloak on the left. 

Of his death and burial nothing has been discovered : but in 
Ashover church, upon a slab, was '^ John Babington 15...,'' 
which might hâve been placed over him, but a preceptor of his 
order was likely at that time to hâve lived abroad. 

In about the year 1460 another of this family, though his pré- 
cise place in the pedigree is unknown, was at the head of this

dated Temple of Sion (in England), lie adds, ^^ our Master 
Thomas Babington, Master and Sovei'eign of our Order, by the 
assent of his brethren, be advised, &c." ' 

The names of Phylyp, James, and John Babington, appear in 
the MS. proœedings of the Order, at Malta, as présent there 
between 1524 and 1559. Phylyp and this John were cadets of 
the Devon brancb.

1557. The Babington manor house at Normanton was in ruins in

Joyce died the 20th day of November 1566." In the register

and coheirs, £lizabeth became the wife of Sir Anthony, and the 
mother of Thomas Babington, of Dethick, and other children.

true, would in some measure account for his using, besides the 
label, the] cadency of a second son ; besides which, though evi- 
dently, like his father, fond of heraldic display, he never quar- 
tered any of the coats of Ormond. 

He married Saunchia, daughter and heiress of Sir Richard 
Stanhope, of Rampton, Knt. She was the heiress of the elder 
Une of Stanhope. Her father's nephew was created, in 1605,

Satcheverell, temp. Rie. I. married the heiress of Fitz-Ercald, 
described erroneously as Hopwell. The heîr a little later mar- 
ried an heiress of Lèche of Chatsworth, and was of Hopwell. 
Satcheverel, of Morley, was a second son of Hopwell. Satcheve- 
rell's next match was with the heiress of Statham, who had mar- 
ried Saltmarsh temp. Hen. V. The ancestor of Saltmarsh mar- 
ried Ruislip, and the ancestor of Ruislip had married Morley, of 
Morley, who had married De la Launde : though with respect to 
theorder of thèse matches there existsmuch uncertainty. Satche- 
verel aiso married before 1560 the heiress of Snitterton, of

were défendants in a Chancery suit against Babington, son 

and heir of Edward Babington, Esq. deoeased, who claimed, by 
will of the testator, his manors and lands in co. Derby, Notts. 
and Leicester.î 

It does not certainly appear who the plaintiff and his iather 
were; probaUy Edward is a misnomer for Edmnnd, and plain- 
tiff was a daimant for his uncle's lands, or possibly for tbose of 
his father, whose executors might be the same with those of his 
brother Henry. 

Molineux and the wife granted a lease of Kingston under the 
will, in IMay, 25 Eliz. 1588. The son therefore was then a minor. 
He niarried first, Frances, daughter of Sir John Markham 
by his second wife Anne, daughter to John Strelley, and widow 
to Richard Stanhope.^ He married secondly, Mary, daughter 
of George Lord Darçy, of Darcy, by Dorothy, daughter and

rity, 100 marcs per annum, charged upon Dethick, Lea, Ash- 
over, Wirksworth, Cricbe, &c. ^ 

*^ He was,'' say the Annals,P '* a young man of a fiunous 
liouse» of a haughty spirit, in learning surpassing fais ag^ and 
very zealous for the Catholic religion." 

Anthony appears to hâve sold to John Clay, of Criche, cîrca 
1584y a part of his grandfather's crown grants, namely, the tithes 
of Criche, Frickley, Culland Park, the Edge, Plaistowe, part of 
Wakebridge, and Coddington, exoepting only some few parcels 
wîthin thèse bounds. 

He seems also to hâve sold Babington Hall in Derby town ; for 
when Mary Queen of Soots lodged there during her passage 
through Derby in lôSô, it belonged to Henry Beaumont, wbo 
had bought it a few years before.4 The hoiise was puUed down 
about twenty years ago; but the site is still marked by ** Babing- 
ton Lane." The garden wall was standing reœntly. 

Anthony gained a melancholy notoriety by his conspira^ on 
behalf of the Queen of Soots, with whoni he appears to hâve 
been in communication at intervais during some years* There 
are varions letters still extant between tlie parties engaged in the

Babington resided, when in London, at a barber's in Bîshops- 
gâte Without^ in the fields. He applied to WaLsingham for 
leave to travel, under pretence of detecting Mary's foreign ac- 
complices. Walsingham delayed his departure under various 
pretences, being made acquainted with his acts and letters 
through GilTord, a priest. 

When Ballard was apprehended, upon August 4, Babington

said to Savage, ** AU will bebewrayed; what remedy now?" 
and he instructed Savage to make the attempt upon the Queen's 
life the next day. Savage pleaded poverty oF apparel ; " Go 
to/' answered Babington, ** hère is my ring, and ail the money 
I hâve ; get the apparel, and dtspatch it." Babington, however^ 
fearing that Savage wonld fail, oontinued bis other plot of the 
six assassins, but, becoming aiarmed, he seems again to bave ap-' 
plied for permission to traveh Walsingham evaded this request» 
by advising him to come to London, and live there at présent. 
He did so, and was watched by Scudamore, a pei^son retained 
by Walsingham. Babington was aiarmed by a note that Scuda- 
more received in bis présence : and the next evening he fled 
from the supper table, leaving his doak and sword. 

Babington disguised himself as a labourer, eut off his hair, and 
stained his face with walnut juice« He and his associâtes reached 
Harrow, half starved. They took refuge tliere in Bellamy's 
house, who seems previously to hâve brought them méat in Ûie 
ivoods. Search was made <<èven into the bedcharobers of 
wealthy and worshipful persons ; " they were seized, and lodged 
in the Tower. The conspiracy appears to bave been unpopularir 
and the bells were rung on their being taken.' 

Anthony Babington was brought up by the. Lieutenant of the 
Tower, and arraigned in Westminster Hall on Wednesday the 
14th of September, 28 Eliz. 1586, charged with conspiring at 
St. Giles's in the fields upon the 5th, 7th, 9th, 10 th, llth, \2xb, 
ISth, 15th, 17th, 22nd, and 24th days of June, and the 8th, 
29 th, Slst July 1586, to kill the Queen, promote a foreign in-^ 
vasion, and deliver the Queen of Scots. He was also charged 
with receiving, on 8th July 1586, a letter from Mary, dated 25th 
June, and with answering it on the 8th July, and receiving a 
further answer from the Queen 25th July. He pleaded guilty. 
Jérôme Bellamy and Robert Gage, who harboured him, were 
arraigned 15th September, also pleaded guilty, and were 
executed. Gage and Charnock had lent him apparel to flee in. 

It appeared that, at the Three Tuns in Newgate market» 
Babington had proposed to remove the Lord Treasurer and Mr. 
Secretary (Burghley and Walsingham), and that he was of 

' PirUh aocounti of St. Botolph, Aldengate, ** Bread uid drinke for the 
ringen." Malc. Iiond. vol. i. p. 337. 


opinkm tbat no invasion would suoeeed darîng the life of the 
Queen. He seems to bave objected to a proposai fiur buming 
tbe <*great ships.'' 

Babington'H exécution took place on Tuesday SOth September 
1586, in Uncoln's Inn fidds» under circumstances of severity 
80 great, that Elizabeth was displeased^ and ordered the test of 
the oonspirators to be in the first place deprived of sensé. Tbe 
goods and possessions of the criminals were oonfiscated, and 
their persons proscribed by act of Parliament. 

A letter of Babington^s to Mary was produced on the trials 
containing the words, << There be six noble gentlemen which 
hâve undertaken the tragical exécution» <MiIy it resteth that their 
attempt be honourably rewarded. Ali the actors hâve Yowed 
either to die, or perform their purpoee." 

Most of the oonspirators seem, and with reason» to hâve le- 
garded Babington with angry feelings on aooount of his cou* 

Tllney said, *< Babington would be a statesman» when ail the 
world knew he was a man of no gravity, and although very wise^ 
yet altogether vain ; " and Abington calls him a *< brainless 
youth, whose proud stomach and ambitions mind inœnsed him 
to commit most abominable treasons." Babington, however, 
spoke with a ^ mild countenance, a sober gesture, and a wonr 
derful good grâce, dedaring the beginning and end of his trea- 
sons, and laying the blâme upon Ballard,*' of wbom he said, 
<< from so bad a tree never proceeds any better finit.'' Ballard 
bore this ungracious reproach with great temper. 

Upon the scafibld Anthony acknowledged himself a most 
grievous trespasser against God and the Queen. His last words 
were^ '* Parce mlhi, domine Jesu/' 

The foUy of the conspirators was excessive. Babington kept 
at his lodgings a picture of Titchbome^ Savage^ and himself ^ 
and npon his own was written, *< Hi mihi sunt comités quos ipsa 
pericula jungunt^^' which he altered to ^^ Quorsum hœc alio pro» 
perantibus ? ** 

Babington's asœndancy in the oonspiracy was probably due 
to his rank and fortune. He took Salisbury to St Alban*s with

Anthony was tenant in tail under his father's settlement. It 
would appear that the remainder of his grandfioher's crown 
grants reverted to the crown upon the attainder. 

He roarried Margaret, daughter of John Drayoot, of Pénis* 
ley^ co. Stafibid. The Draycots were Roman Catholics, and 
their influence was probably exerted over Anthony Babington. 

In the 12th of James, there was a suit between the Univ^rsity 
of Oxford and the Bishop of Lichfield and Coveutry respecting 
the présentation to the church of Draycot, co. Staffi>rd, whence 
it appeared that John Draycot, the real patron and lord et the. 
manor in fee, was a " Popish récusant oonvict.^

who are alluded to in their father's letter to Elisabeth the night 
before his exécution ; < but nothing is known of their further

Henry Babington granted a lease of a close withhi the lord- 
ship of Litchurch, and on the lease John Osbeston was plaintiff 
in a suit in Chancery, temp. Eiiz. against Francis Molyneux, 
the executor, and Francis Babington the son.<^ 

Temp. Elisabeth there was a suit in Chancery between George 
Babington, plaintiff^ and Francis Babington, défendant. 

It appeared that Henry Babington was seised in feeof certain 
manors in Derby and Notts. (vide p. S50), and he conveyed 
them to trustées to his own use for life, with remainder in tail 
maie to the heirs of his body by Mary Darcy his wife, remainder 
to his right heirs. 

His sons by Mary were Anthony, Francis, and George, of 
whom Anthony committed treason, and was attainted after 

On suit to Lord Darcy the uncle, by Francis the défendant» 
Lord D. agreed to make interest to recover the estate, on con- 
dition the défendant promised to provide for his brother (plain^* 
tiff) and the sisters. The object of the suit was this provision. 

There was also a suit in the same reign in Chancery, from 
which it appeared that, under their father's marriage setdement» 
Francis and George Babington were possessed of certain lands, 
of which they conveyed for a term of years to Francis Beaumont» 
a Justice of the Common Pleas, the nianor of Litchurch, co. 
Derby .<^ They in fact sold Litchurch to Sir Francis Beaumont. 

Kingston was sold by them to the Earl of Shrewsbury. In 1590 
Earl Gilbert sued Francis Babington in Chancery for a lease 
acoording to agreement of the manor of Kingston, and mes- 
suages, lands^ and tenements within the manor of Kingston.^ 

Francis was dead before 20 June^ 19 Jac. 1. 1622. He is de- 
scribed as an unthrift, and very justly. His brother's treason 
and his extravagance reduced the inheritance of his brother 
George to a low ebb. 

He married Juliana, daughter of Thomas Rowe^ Alderman 
of London. No issue. Sir Henry Rowe, Knt. was Lord Mayor 
of London 1607, ob. 1612. His father. Sir Thomas Rowe, 
also Lord Mayor, ob. 1570; will dated 2 May 1369; his 
wife's name was Mary. They were ali of Hackney, to the 
church of which place the grandson, Sir Henry Rowe» Knt., 
added a chapel, as a burying place for his faraily* There also

of Downshire represents the family, and owns the cbapel/ 

The members of this family seem ail to bave risen to opulence 
at about the same period» but their précise relaûonsbip to eadi 
pther« or to Juliana Babington, does not appear.

with his brother Francis.

Also Babington's chief rents • « • 2 18 4

But, although the lands bore their name, it does not appear 
that the Babington's still possessed them. 

By deed dated 9 June 1633, Thomas Babington, of the bo» 
rough of Leicester, a distant kinsman, sold lands and tithes in 
Tannesley, and his name oocurs as Toudier fi>r the manor of 
Lea and other lands. Seal, a demi griffin.s 

This acoount of the children of Henry Babington by his two 
wives diiTers materially from that given in Nîchols's Leicester- 
shire, under Rothley, which makes Anthony, Frands, and 
George die issue by Francis Markham, and Thomas, who dîed 
young, the only issue of Mary Darcy, altogether omitting the 
daughters ; but Andiony, in his grant to Henry Foljambe, calls 
Mary Darcy, then Foljambe, his mother, and the recitation of 
Henry Babington's will proves that he then had living seven 
daughters and Uvo sons. Possibly he might refer to the younger 
children only, and so omit Anthony. ^

This Cburch, dedicated to St. Mary, consiste of a Nave, 
Chance), North and South Âisles, and North and South 

Chancel. — The east window is of five lights cinquefoiled, 
wjth a heading of eight double-foliated trefoils. 

The séparation from the north chapel is by two raised tombs • 
under canopied arches, with panelled compartments in the soffit, 
and having between them a low pointed-arched doorway. Im- 
mediately above this door is a canopied niche supported by a 
bracket resting on a head, and having ite side shafte supported 
by blank shields. 

The spandrils of the arch of the tomb nearest to the nave 
hâve blank shields and foliage. Immediately above this arch is u 
large shield, bearing, Quarterly, ^ 

1. Barry of six, a bend; crescent for différence, Poynings. 
2. On a chief two muUets, St. John. 3. Three water lx>ugets,

shield, Quarterly, of eight, as before» with the escocheon of 
pretenoe, and impaling Quarterly, 1 and 4, Poulett^ 2 and S, On 
a chief a demi lion rampant, Denébaud. 

As thèse monuments, although combined and forming a sort 
of open screen between the chancel and the two chapek, are in 
fact distinct fîom each other, it wili be necessary to coosider 
them as if they were isolated. The north side of this m<»u- 
ment, therefore, which would otherwise be considered in con- 
nection with the north chapel, must hère be nodced ; and so of 
the others. It has on its north side a shield similar to tbat on 
the south side, and surmounted by the helmet and crest; and 
the beginning of the inscription along the frieze from left to 
right is, ** Hic jacet Johes Poulet,^ miles, et Alicia ux. ej.** «m- 
tinuing, ** qui obierunt," 8cc. as before described. The shields 
in the spandrils are blank. 

The other monument on this side of the Chancel, and nearest 
to the communion rails, has on each of its sides a shield bearing 
the same coats as on thepreoeding monument, exoepting that the 
third quartering is that otPonleii in place of Bas ; and that there 
is no escocheon of pretence* It is surmounted by a helmet 
and crest. The side facing the north chapel is similar; the 
shields in the spandrils being aiso blank* The inscription akmg 
the irieze, beginning on the north side, is '* Hic jacet Jolies 
Poulet,*! armig. et Elenor ux^ ej." and then continued on the 
south side, <* qui obierunt mêse Septembris, anno Dni 1488. 1.H.*' 

The spandrils of the door, on both its sides, hâve, on the left 
a shield bearing Poulett, and on the right the Poynings' badge^ 
viz. a key suspended witbin a knotted cord ring. This door has 
above it a niche on the north, as on the south side. 

' Son of Jolm Poulet and Eleanor his wife, hereafter mentioned. Hii wilè, 
Alice, was daughter to Sir William Poulet, of Hinton St. George, by Eliabeth, 
daughter and heir of Jolin Deneband, of Hinton St. (Seorge. 

* Son of Sir John Poulet and Constanoe Poyninga. His wile Eleanor waa 
daughter and heir of Robert Ros, of Skelton. His grandfather, WiUiam Poulet, 
married the heiress of Delamare, of Nunney. See an account of the monuments 
at Nunney» in Collinson's Somerset ; and Leland's Itinarary. 

BA8ING. 371

simîlar. The door bas two shields in the spandrils» one bearing 
Pauktt, with a crescent for différence ; the other bearing a lion 
rampant between three cross-crosslets fitchy) CapeL e In place 
of the niche above is a large shield, of later date^ within a garter 
(the whole being inclosed by a square frame-work), bearing,

The supporters are, two hinds semée of estoiles; and the 
motus *^Aymes loyaulte/' The whole is surmounted by a 
helmet and crest. 

The same ooat is also over the door on the south side. 

The spandrils of the doorway on the side fadng the south 
chapel hâve two shields ; one charged with the badge of Payn- 
ings^ the other bearing, a chevron between three roundels, on a 
chiet a fret between two roses : an old coat of CapeL 

The monument on the chancel side^ and nearest to the east 
end, is surmounted by the same coat quarterly within a garter, 
but without supporters. In the spandrils of the arch are shields. 
That to the east bas the same coats within a garter, and sur- 
mounted by a coronet : that to tlie west bears, Quarterly, 1 and 
4, Capelj 2 and S, Gope/ ancieni ; also surmounted by a coronet. 

The oorresponding monument on the western side is sur- 
mounted by a shield bearing the same ten coats quarterly, but 
without the garter. The shields in the spandrils are blank. A 
debased comice, in the Italian style, runs along the upper part 
of the wall immediately over thèse two monumental arches. 
The south sides of thèse monuments are, in every respect, cor- 
respondent to the sides next the chancel. The doors on either 
side of the chancel bave small openings through the jamba 
nearest to the communion table, as if intended for confession.

The royal arms are placed against the east window of this 
chapel, and are inscribed, ^^ 1660, C. R." The churçh was 
repaired in 1839, when the old communion ri^ils were removed 
to this chapel. They bave a carved inscription as follows: 
*' This don by Francis Dickenson 1T14."

north chapel, and closed up. Erected against it is a modem 
monument of white marble, with a good bust of tlie deceased,

affection, is raisçd by her to the roemory of the fondest of bus-

before 16T1. The présent number of bells is two; one has re- 
cendy been recast. The other is inscribed, " Henry Moore, 
George Michell, C. W. 1676." 

It would seem almost a matter of certainty, from the size of 
the tower, &c., that there was originally a peal of bells, and the 
incumbent, the Rev<l. S. Davies, states, that the traditions of the 
place specify particular churches in the neighbourhood as being 
the récipients of the old bells, dispersed during the civil war.

of his disposition, and his readiness to promote the interests of 
those who needed his assistance, gained him the respect and 
esteem of ail who had the happiness of his intimacy ; while his 
polished manners conciliated those who were unacquainted with 
the higher parts of his character, or even incapable of appréciât-

bigotry or fanaticism, nor alloyed by any ostentation of peculiar 
sanctity. After spending his life in the duties of his profession, 
the service of his friends, and attention to the wants of the poor, 
lie ooncluded it by a manly and Christian death, attentive even

nued his travels to the Impérial and other Courts of Germany. 
When at that of Hanover, he not only met a most courteous 
réception, but favourable admission, to the most confidential 
familiarity of his Electoral Highness, shortly after by the name 
of George the First asceuding the British throne. To whose 
first Parliament, being unanimously, both by this county as well 
as its town of Andover^ returned one of their parliamentary 
représentatives ; he was soon after^ by his Majesty's particular 
nomination, appoinled one of the Lords Ciommissioners of his 
Treasury, and, while executing that important office, created Lord 


Viscount Lymyngton. By George IL he was first made one of 
his Lords Chief Justiœs in Eyre. Then conjointly of the 
county of Southampton Lord Lieutenant and Custos Rotulo- 
mm, of its new Forest Lord Warden, and of its Isle of Wight 
Govenior ; and lastly, created Earl of Portsmouth by George IIL 
'* He was continued to the day of hb Lordsbip's death in the 
govemment of the Isle of Wight, in the possession whereof he 
was found at the time of his royal predecessor's démise. 

<' The monumental marble of his first most excellent lady 
(whereto his dying orders directed his own to be collaterally ar-* 
ranged) memorizes their numerousofiTsprhig, when no others sur- 
vived him but his son Charles and five grand-children (John, 
Henry, Barton, Bennett,and Catharine) the children of his eldest 
son, John Lord Lymyngton. By a second marriage with Elizabeth, 
daughter of Lord GriiBn,^ relict of Henry Grey, Esq. he had no 
issue. Actuated by the sublimest vénération of God, and sin- 
cerest belief of his divînely-sanctioned Gospel Révélation, ge- 
nuinely corresponsive piety and probity of manners, he exhibited 
himself a most eminent example of every Christian or moral, 
domestic or patriotic virtue. Under the consolative conscious- 
ness whereof, he was the same through the several changes and 
chances of the concernment of this life, happily retained tran- 
quillity of mind, on y« 22nd of Nov. in the year of our Lord 
1762, and of his own âge y® 72^, departed from it, leaving his 
mortal remains reposited in this, by his pious liberality, re- 
edifyd Church."

married May 20, 1716, to John Wallop, Esq. now Viscount 
Lymyngton, and died Oct. 12, 1738, in the 43d year of her âge. 
Her person and address were very beautifui and lovely; and 
rendered still more amiable by the many eminent qualities of 
her mind. For she adorned every relation and period of life with

those virtues which naturally constitute a fair and lasting charac- 
ter; having been tlie most dutiful and observant daughter; the 
most discreet and exemplaiy parent ; the most faitbful and judi- 
cious friend ; the most tender and afFectionate wife ; in her devo* 
tion she was constant» sincère, and unaffected, and in ail hercon* 
duct truly Christian, which, joined to a compassionate and cha- 
ritable disposition, ever inclined her to feed the hungry, clothe 
the naked, and visit the sick ; whereby she gave the most certain 
proof of her being really influenced by the genuine principles 
of religion and virtue. From hence she was habitually prepared 
to bear a tedious illness, and enabled to go through the severest 
trials of pain and sickness, not only with due submission to the 
will of God, but with indescribable sweetness and chearfulness 
ofspirit. This imperfect tribute of praise is erected in honour 
to her virtues by her afflicted husband John Lord Viscount 
Lymyngton, who enjoyed more true satisfaction while she was 
living, and has lost more in losing her, than can be expressed by 
the power of grief itself. Of ten children (the happy fruit of 
their happy marriage) she has left behind her four sons and 
one daughter, John, Borlace, Charles, filuet, and Anne. Two 
sons and two daughters died very young, and their eldest daugh- 
ter Bridget, died June 21, 1736, in the 20th year of her âge; 
in which early season of her life she merited and acquired the 
esteem and affection of ail that knew her ; having distingubhed 
herself by a very uncommon prudence and propriety in ail the 
decencies of behaviour, as well as in the more essential parts of 
her duty to God and her parents."

Some mutilated portions of inscriptions are also inserted in dif- 
férent places ; but as this window is stated to bave been made up 
of fragments, collected for the purpose by the late Mrs. Brocas, 
it is not, with the exception of the Pexall shield, of much 

Nave. — Is separated from the chancel by a boarding, in- 
scribed, << O Chryst Heare us, Â. D. 1634." A part of the 
ceiling is panelled in oak, with rich foliated bosses. The pulpit 
is also of carved oak, with the date " 1634," and inscription, 
« mad by Henri Sly/* « W. M. I. B." 

On the north side are three Windows, two having trefoiled 
lights; the third cinquefoiled. There are some vestiges of 
stained glass. The south side is lighted by two trefoiled Windows.

now torn off. The fifth line is, as wiU be seen, defecti?e. Such enigmatical in-

figured during the récent repairs, in the Vicai*'s absence» by a 
coating of white paint speckled with black. 

The royal arms are over the singing gallery, dated 1660. 

ExTERiOR. — The south door was pointed, but has been partly 
modernised. Above it are the mutilated figures of a man and 
his wife kneeling, under canopies, with this inscription: *' Of 
your charité pray for the soûle of James Spier,^ departed in the 
the yere of our Lord b9 M.vÇxxxiiij, on hos soûl Jesu hâve marsi." 

The Porch is of brick, and lias two plain square Windows. 
The gable is surmounted by a plain cross. The doorway is 
pointed. In one spandril is the letter I. ; and in the other a 
shield. Above is this inscription: '* Of yo' charité pray for the 
sowles of James Spyre and Jone his wyf, which caused this 
porch to be mad at their cost, the year of our Lord 1533/' 

This Church is of flint coated with cément, and has a tiled 
roofing. The Tower, which is at the west end, has been recently 
heightened, and ornamented by the addition of a spire of copper. 
It has a pierced sig-zag parapet, with pinnades, terminating in 
finials, at the angles. On the west side are two Windows of two 
lights each, the lowest having a transome. Under this is a 
lozenge shield, bearing, ChuUej with Smith of Erlestoke, on an 
escocbeon of pretence, and this inscription : 

<< Hanc turrem teuipore dilapidatam reparavit et ornavit 
Elizabetha Chute,' Mdcccxxxiv/'

he eipecially desiret to baye " a marble ttone to lay over my lepulture, with scrip- 
tore, and images of a man and woman with seren cbildren." He desires to be 
biiried at the south door, and that a new sonth door, of stone, shonld be eiected, 
for whioh pnipose he states that he had given the som of forty shillings by eon- 
tract to a masonin adrance. He mentions his wife Joan and his son Richard Spire. 
His ezecntors to be his brother Sir Thomas, and Willism Woodoock ; the latter, 
^>parently, his son-in-law. 

f This benerolent lady, who was the yoimgest davghter and coheir of Joshna 
Smith, Esq. of Erlestoke, oo. WUU, died Jnly S8, 1842, at the Vine. There is a 
description of this seat in Wamer's History of Hampshire, but which was preri- 
ovsiy pablished in the Topographer in 1789. Beaurepaire is also in this parish ; 
the earliest mention of it in the Inq. p. mortem is in the Ist of Henry IV. as 
one of the possessions of Sir Bernard Brocas, son of Sir Bernard Brocas and Mary 
Roches. The situation of the old moated honse, now under repair, is, in thèse 
our days, hardly deserving of the llattering name. The soil ts a deep day, and the 


Tbe tower is likewise Itghted, on each of its otber sides, by 
Windows of two lights. There is a plain door on tbe north side, 
entering tbe Brocas Aisle.
